Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

This facility received a quality overall grade as described above, but we especially would like to emphasize its excellent government inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively insignificant. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Among this nursing home's other accomplishments is its dominant long-term care score. We awarded them one of our most impressive scores in that area, with a score of A. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. Once we assessed the volume of nursing care, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 99.373695 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is too frequently a dangerous ailment for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home doesn't leave this to chance. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Another strong feature for this facility is that it received an impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B. We assessed the levels of nurses working for the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of hours those nurses spent with patients, in determining our score in this category. This particular nursing home provided 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 frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to our last area, this nursing home really didn't perform very well. With a poor grade of F in this area, this was obviously this facility's worst grade. Short-term care grades are meaningful for residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional skilled nursing services. This means a broad spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the data we assessed. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 3.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
