Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively minor. This place received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this facility's above average category grades came in the area of long-term care. We gave them one of our more positive grades in that category, with a grade of B+. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is far higher than the average nursing home. Clearly, this place 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

This nursing home is also above average in the category of short-term care, where it was given a grade of B. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to create a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 5.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The last category we assessed is nursing. We gave this facility a C in this area. Our nursing grade assesses the facility's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of skill of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. This place provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a low total compared to most facilities. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures. While this nursing home got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of these quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this statistic. This is often an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of moving patients even once per day.
