Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively minor. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B+ for its long-term care rating. This is an above average grade in this category. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care typically are well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 96.49596 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents healthy. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of B-. This wasn't quite as good as some of its other scores, but a grade in this range is not the end of the world. When determining our nursing grades, we assess both nursing hours and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This facility averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily, which is not an impressive total. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually a reliable indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Turning to our fourth area, this nursing home was awarded an acceptable short-term care score of B-. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last measure we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.
