Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

On top of being a strong facility overall, this facility especially excelled in our inspections category, where it earned an A-. Not many nursing homes performed better in that area. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Among this nursing home's other strengths is its elite long-term care grade. We gave them one of our best grades in that area, with a score of A-. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 99.20635 percent of its patients, which is very impressive. Pneumonia tragically can be a life or death condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't leave this to chance. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

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+. There are several criteria within this grade. Most of these criteria relate to staffing levels. This nursing home averages 3.5 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 facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next area we graded proved to be this facility's worst area. Nevertheless, even in its weakest link we still awarded it a decent grade of C in our short-term care category. In determining our short-term care grades, we scrutinize a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other licensed professionals. This category is considered to be a fair assessment of a facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. We were pleased to find that this nursing home employs both registered nurses and physical therapists. The same can't be said for all nursing homes. The final statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. This nursing home performed better in this statistic. This place fared better than most nursing homes in this metric with 51.7 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, at most nursing homes, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.
