Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to receiving a strong overall score, this nursing home also received excellent health inspections recently. We awarded it one of our best scores in that area, with a grade of A. Inspection ratings are tied to items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that receive favorable grades in this category have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. Unfortunately, this facility received a category L deficiency, which is not what we expected based on its inspection score. These are the worst type of deficiencies. This category of deficiency indicates CMS found a widespread deficiency putting resident health or safety in imminent jeopardy. Any serious deficiency is a major concern. In spite of this major red flag, other aspects of this facility's inspection report gave us some hope.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. This proved to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this nursing home an A-. Nursing scores are tied to quality and quantity of nursing care. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to the third category, this facility also earned a score of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is a well above average grade in this category. In forming our short-term care ratings, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to create a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 5.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

The last area we graded was long-term care, where this nursing home received a B+. This completed an elite report card. Very few nursing homes earned a B+ or better in in each area we assessed. Nursing homes that do well in this category typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is far higher than most nursing homes. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
