Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

In addition to earning a strong overall score, this nursing home performed even better in our inspections category which is based on the facility's recent government inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for this category, which is one of our highest scores. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This place was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to resident safety or health. A couple relatively minor dings aren't necessarily something to panic about.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B. Nursing grades are heavily correlated with nurse staffing levels. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by having a system of moving a resident at least once a day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

In addition, this facility also received favorable long-term care grades in our assessment. In fact, we gave it one of our better grades in that category, with a grade of B. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is too frequently a life or death ailment for nursing home residents so we prefer when a facility doesn't take any chances. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, 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-minus

Switching gears to the final category, this nursing home was awarded a grade of B- in short-term care, which we consider to be an acceptable rating. In our short-term care assessment, we endeavor to craft a sound measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at the facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. We weren't able to track down registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this place. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents that were able to return home from this facility. We found that 5.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below average.
