Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a great nursing home overall, it also received A+ inspections recently. Its inspections were virtually perfect. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency 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 facility's other achievements is its high-end long-term care grade. We awarded them one of our better scores in that category, with a grade of A. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it generally means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. After we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly is often a dangerous condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave this to chance. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. This facility didn't perform quite as well in this category as it did in some other categories. Nevertheless, this is still a respectable score. There are a host of datapoints within this area. Most of the datapoints relate to staffing levels. 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. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly excelled in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it scored well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last category we analyzed proved to be this nursing home's weakest area. However, even in its weakest link we still awarded it a decent grade of B- in short-term care. Short-term care grades are commonly used to gauge a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to have good rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature better levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. We were not able to locate registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The final measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients 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.
