Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to faring well overall, this facility received nearly flawless government inspections. Consequently, it received one of our best scores in that category with an A+. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Contributing to this nursing home's list of accomplishments, it also was given a first-rate long-term care score. We gave them a dominant strong of A in this area. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 90 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be slightly less than we expected but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we assessed is short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a B-. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. We weren't able to locate information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final item we considered in this area is the number of patients that were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 5.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last area we graded is nursing. We awarded this facility a decent grade in this category, with a grade of B-. Although this was not on par with several of this facility's other grades, it is nevertheless not a terrible score. When determining a facility's nursing rating, we weigh the amount of time nurses are with patients as well as the level of skill of the nurses. This particular facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This figure is far below average. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually a reliable indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.
