Facility Inspections

Grade: A

One of the reasons this turned out to be a quality facility is that it received an impressive inspection grade. Inspections is its best category. In this category, we gave this facility an A. Our inspection ratings are based on many items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that excel in this category typically have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

An additional quality feature for this facility is that it was given a very positive long-term care grade. Indeed, this ended up being its second best category score. In this category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B+. Facilities that excel in long-term care tend to provide patients with better supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 99.583336 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is too frequently a deadly health condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave this to chance. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The third most favorable category we awarded this facility in any category came in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-. Short-term care ratings are based on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a vast spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Turning to the next area, this nursing home was awarded a respectable nursing score of B-. Our nursing score includes several factors. The most heavily weighted one is the number of hours nurses spent with residents. This facility averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily, which is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. It scored well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
