Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Inspection scores are tied to datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this category have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. In that category, we awarded this facility an B+. When computing our nursing ratings, we look at both staffing levels and the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Turning to another strength for this facility, we awarded them one of our more favorable grades in our short-term care category as well, with a B. Our short-term care grades are presumably more meaningful for people in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not just nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last category we assessed turned out to be this nursing home's worst area. Nevertheless, even in its weakest link we still awarded it a decent grade of B- in our long-term care category. For residents in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. One of the statistics we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Thankfully, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 99.17355 percent of its patients. This nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
