Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to point out the fact that this facility has received near flawless health inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A+ in this area. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This facility was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies an immediate risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its strong profile, this facility also was awarded a dominant long-term care grade, with a score of A. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in long-term care tend to provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are kept in good health. One of the criteria we considered on top of nurse's aid hours is vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 88.42105 percent of its residents. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

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+. The nursing rating assesses many components, but the main consideration is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. 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 facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last area we scored was short-term care. We awarded this facility a decent score in that area, with a C. While this is not as strong as several of its other grades, it is nevertheless not the end of the world. In calculating our short-term care grades, we assess a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. This category is often a reliable assessment of a facility's rehabilitation. We weren't able to locate registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The last datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
