Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of performing well in its overall grade, this facility 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. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to patient safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this facility's above average category grades came in the area of short-term care. We gave them one of our more favorable grades in that category, with a score of B. Our short-term care grades are probably most important for folks needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. We were not able to locate registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The last measure we considered in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 5.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

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. The nursing score features a variety of subcategories. The most important one is the amount of time nurses spend with residents. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next area we graded was long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of C in that category. For prospective residents in need of a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 92.36948 percent of its patients. Nevertheless, this nursing home excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
