Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While this nursing home's overall grade was decent, it really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our best scores. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In that category, we gave this facility an A-. The nursing grade weighs several factors. The most heavily weighted one is the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients. This nursing home averages 0 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 prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this nursing home's more favorable category grades was in the category of short-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of B. In our short-term care score, we strive to craft a sound barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess the nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this facility submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we analyzed is long-term care. It received an abysmal F in this area, which is a bottom of the barrel score. This is certainly a major concern. If you are seeking anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care ratings. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 97.95918 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this place also keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
