Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This place was hit with 8 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to be an imminent threat to resident health or safety. A few relatively minor dings aren't the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home truly excelled in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed more favorably in this category. If you are seeking services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. Once we concluded our assessment of the volume of nursing care, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 89.002556 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another strong feature for this facility is that it received an impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B+. When computing our nursing grades, we factor in both nursing hours and the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's worst area was short-term care, which is the final area we scored. For this area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of just D. We want to to point out this potential area of weakness, however, you should not over-emphasize a single category either. In the category of short-term care, we strive to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. It looks like this place was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the staffing figures we considered. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who eventually returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 2.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
