Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This facility received a quality overall score as described above, but we especially want to point out its excellent health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively insignificant. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple relatively minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility was given a strong long-term care score as well. We awarded it one of our higher grades in that area with a score of B+. If you are looking for anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care scores. Once we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 93.63905 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B. There are numerous subcategories included in this category. Most of the datapoints are tied to the quantity of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we rated was short-term care. We gave this nursing home a B- in that area. Our short-term care grades are based in part on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a broad range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final metric we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.
