Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to performing well overall, this nursing home also earned a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it earned one of our best scores in that category with an A+. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to create an imminent risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Among the reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received a dominant long-term care score. In fact, long-term care is its second most favorable category score. In that area, we awarded this facility a score of A-. Facilities that receive this kind of score in long-term care tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure patients are well cared for. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 96.49123 percent of its patients, which is very impressive. Pneumonia tragically can be a life or death ailment for nursing home residents so we prefer when a facility does not leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

The next area we assessed was short-term care. This nursing home was given an above average short-term care score, with a B+ in this category. Our short-term care grades are meaningful for people looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a vast scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we rated was nursing. This nursing home received a very good nursing rating this year, with a grade of B-. Although this wasn't as good as several of its other category grades, this is nevertheless a respectable rating for this area. When computing a nursing home's nursing score, we consider the amount of time nurses are with residents and the levels of training of those nurses. This place provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, nursing scores also factor in quality-based metrics, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this facility actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally a reliable indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
