Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a strong nursing home overall, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A+. Not many facilities fared better in that area. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this facility's impressive category scores came in the area of long-term care. We awarded them one of our more positive grades in that category, with a score of B+. Nursing homes that do well in this category tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents. Once we concluded our assessment of the volume of nursing care, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 99.69183 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly can be a deadly condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a nursing home doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

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 computing a nursing home's nursing rating, we look at the amount of time nurses commit to patients as well as the levels of training of those nurses. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the number of hours of care provided.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final category we looked at was short-term care. We awarded it a C in that category. This is a fair grade in this area. In forming our short-term care grades, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to devise a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final measure we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 4.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
