Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of performing well overall, this nursing home also received a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it earned one of our best grades in that area with an A+. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We also would like to point out the fact that this facility was awarded a strong score of A in our short-term care category. Our short-term care grade is often employed to score a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide better levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. It doesn't appear that this facility submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 7.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We also wanted to alert you to the fact that this facility was given an impressive grade of A in our long-term care area. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 93.89313 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is slightly lower than we expected but still a decent figure. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last category we analyzed is nursing. We awarded this facility an acceptable grade in that category, with a B-. Even though this isn't as dominant as many of this nursing home's other grades, it is still not the end of the world. There are many criteria within this area. Many of the data points relate to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, we also factored some quality-based metrics into our nursing scores. This place was relatively weak in two of the major areas we focus on, with below average scores for minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. These areas are typically decent indicators of the quality of nursing care offered.
