Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of performing well in its overall grade, this nursing home performed at an even higher level in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A. Our inspection scores weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area generally have few severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't something to panic about.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this facility's above average category grades came in the category of long-term care. We gave them one of our more positive scores in that area, with a score of B+. When nursing homes receive this type of score in this category it is typically a good sign for patient care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 94.44444 percent of its residents, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly is often a dangerous ailment for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't take any chances. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.22 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than most nursing homes.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B for its nursing rating. This is a well above average score in this category. Our nursing score is primarily based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 3.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed certain nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these areas as predictive measures of the caliber of nursing care being provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next area we graded was short-term care, where this facility received a B. This nursing home ended up being relatively strong in each category we looked at. In determining our short-term care ratings, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to create a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. One of this nursing home's strength is that it offers more hours of physical therapy per week to its residents. The final item we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to return to the community. This place was better than average with 50.7 percent of its residents returning home.
