Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

One of the reasons this place is a quality nursing home is that it received an impressive inspection grade. In fact, inspections is its best category grade. In that area, we gave this facility an A-. Inspection ratings are based on many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this category have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home was awarded high grades in the category of short-term care as well. Consequently, it received one of our most superb scores in that category with a score of A-. Our short-term care ratings are considered to be more meaningful for folks needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more skilled nursing. This means not merely nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. Nursing grades are tied to quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of moving residents more often.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next area we analyzed was long-term care, where this nursing home was given a grade of B. This nursing home didn't turn out to have any real weak links. Facilities that receive this kind of score in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to ensure patients are kept in good health. After we finished assessing the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 87.111115 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
