Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To pair with a great overall score, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for inspections. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Among its many impressive grades, this facility received an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A in that category. Our nursing score is mostly based on the nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provided 4.5 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, which was among the highest totals we found. Finally, this place also performed well in several of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In terms of the percentage of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, this place performed better than the national average.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to an additional strength for this facility, we awarded them one of our more positive grades in our short-term care category as well, with a B+. Our short-term care grades are likely most critical for residents in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of skilled nursing services. This means not only nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The last category we looked at is long-term care. In this area, we gave this nursing home a favorable grade of B. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. While we determined this facility had an above average volume of nursing care provided by aids and other nursing staff, we found its vaccination rate to be a bit slightly lower than we anticipated. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to just 82.57575 percent of its residents. This is a figure we would really like to see this nursing home improve on. Finally, we looked at its number of hospitalizations. With 1.73 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this place was just about middle of the pack in this area.
