Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its favorable overall score, we gave this nursing home an A for our inspections rating. Inspection grades weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this category usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. While this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home was awarded high grades in the area of long-term care as well. Consequently, it received one of our strongest grades in that category with a score of A. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in this category typically provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure residents are well cared for. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients out of the hospital. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility also was awarded a favorable short-term care grade. Indeed, we awarded it an above average grade of B in this category. Short-term care grades are vital for prospective residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a vast spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 5.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The next area we analyzed was nursing. This nursing home was given a strong nursing grade this year, with a grade of C. While this wasn't nearly as good as a few of its other grades, this is still an acceptable score in that area. Our nursing score focuses on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of training of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a much lower figure than we were hoping for. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this nursing home performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually a reliable indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place.
