Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving an elite overall grade, this nursing home also earned an A+ inspection grade. This is based on its recent inspection reports. An A+ in this area is one of the highest complements we can pay to a facility. Inspection ratings are based on datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this area have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies 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

This facility really excelled in the category of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of A. Very few facilities performed better in this category. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. After considering the quantity of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia can be a life threatening health condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't take any chances. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility also was awarded an impressive short-term care score. In fact, we awarded it an above average score of B in this category. Short-term care grades are generally used to judge a facility's rehabilitation services In order to offer highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer higher levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this facility provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. Finally, we assessed the number of patients that eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The final area we assessed was nursing. This nursing home received a favorable nursing rating this year, with a grade of C. Although this isn't quite as dominant as some of its other category grades, this remains a respectable score for this area. Nursing ratings are based in large part on nurse staffing levels. This nursing home provides only 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a somewhat discouraging figure as it is well below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home actually fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It scored well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
