Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While this nursing home's overall grade was not bad, it really fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

We also awarded this nursing home a positive score in short-term care. This nursing home earned a grade of B in this category, which is one of our better grades. Our short-term care ratings are arguably more critical for those in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. This means not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 5.3 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of B-. Nursing grades are largely based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this place actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often a reliable indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final category we rated was long-term care. We awarded it a grade of C in that area. This is a perfectly acceptable grade in this area. For patients looking for a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility administered the vaccine to 99.62687 percent of its patients, which is a very solid percentage. This place keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
