Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to receiving a great overall score, this nursing home fared even better in our inspections category which is based on the facility's recent government inspections. In fact, we gave it a grade of A for this area, which is one of our highest scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively minor. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Building on its impressive resume, this place also excelled in nursing. In fact, we gave it an B for that category. Nursing scores are largely associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The third category we graded was long-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a solid grade of B-. In determining our long-term care ratings, we scrutinize the personal care offered to a facility's patients. One of the datapoints we considered after nursing hours is vaccines. We were a bit worried that this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to only 88.559326 percent of its patients. On a more positive note, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Turning to our fourth area, this nursing home was awarded a respectable short-term care score of B-. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to formulate a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final measure we assessed in this area is the number of patients that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure was below the national average.
