Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to being a quality nursing home overall, this facility excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A. Few nursing homes fared better in this area. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious 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

This facility performed well in the area of long-term care. Indeed, we awarded it a score of A- for that area, which is one of our highest scores. Facilities that excel in this category tend to provide patients with better supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 98.67987 percent of its patients. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents healthy. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, 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-plus

The third area we graded was short-term care. This facility was awarded an impressive short-term care score, with a grade of B+ in this category. Short-term care grades are generally used to assess a facility's rehabilitation services In order to provide quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. It does not look like this facility provided registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The last statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that 6.4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Moving on to our final category, this nursing home received a decent nursing grade. Even though this was not quite as dominant as many of its other category grades, this is still not the end of the world. In computing a nursing home's nursing grade, we weigh the amount of time nurses commit to patients as well as the level of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a somewhat discouraging figure which is well below the national average. Lastly, our nursing ratings also consider quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often an indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses to assist its patients.
