Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While this facility's overall grade was decent, it really fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our best scores. Our inspection grades are based on many pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this area typically have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This tells you CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this nursing home's stronger areas was in the category of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B. Our nursing rating is mostly tied to the facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home 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 often be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

In addition, we also would like to point out that this facility received favorable short-term care marks in this assessment. We gave them one of our more impressive scores in this category, with a grade of B. Short-term care scores are vital for individuals needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a vast range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, 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 eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 4.3 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final category we rated was long-term care. For that category, we awarded this facility a C. If you are looking for anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. We were pleased to discover that this facility vaccinates 98.738174 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
