Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the reasons this place turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is as good as it gets in this critical area. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with better grades in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies an imminent 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-minus

To add to its high-end performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our long-term care rating. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in long-term care typically provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure residents are kept in good health. On the whole this looks like a good option for long-term care.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also received a strong nursing score. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this area. Nursing scores are mostly based on a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of turning a patient at least once a day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Switching gears to our final area, this nursing home was given a very strong short-term care grade. We gave it a B+ in this area, topping off one of our more favorable report cards. Short-term care ratings are critical for residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. It doesn't appear that this facility submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the number of residents who ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
