Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a great facility overall, it also earned A+ inspections recently. Its inspections are virtually perfect. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite insignificant. Although this place had some deficiencies on its 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

This nursing home performed well in the area of long-term care. As a result, we gave it a score of A- for that category, which is one of our most impressive scores. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. After considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 99.12281 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents out of the hospital. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Additionally, this nursing home also was given favorable short-term care scores this year. In fact, we awarded it one of our stronger grades in that area, with a grade of B+. With our short-term care score, we attempt to craft a valuable measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze the facility's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Switching gears to the fourth area, this facility was given an acceptable nursing grade. While this isn't nearly as strong as several of its other category grades, this is still not a poor grade. Nursing grades are heavily correlated with nurse staffing levels. This particular facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This figure is significantly below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually excelled in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
