Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious 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: B-plus

An additional strong feature for this facility is that it was awarded an above average long-term care grade. Indeed, this proved to be its second best category score. In this area, we gave this facility a grade of B+. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care typically provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours is vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 98.80478 percent of its residents. This is a proven method to avoid unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the elderly population. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. While this wasn't quite as good as some of its other category grades, this isn't a bad score either. Nursing ratings are based in large part on quantity of nursing care available. This facility provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures. Although this nursing home got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of these quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this subcategory. This is typically a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as employing a system of moving patients at least once a day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last category we rated was short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a C in this category. In the area of short-term care, we try to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from this nursing home. We found that 4.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below average.
