Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

We want to point out that this facility really outperformed its overall grade in the category of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in this area with an A-. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite insignificant. This nursing home received 10 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies to be an immediate threat to resident safety or health. A few minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of B- in this category. Our nursing grade is largely associated with a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home offers extremely high levels of nursing care, averaging 4.7 hours per resident per day. This is well above average. Finally, this facility performed well in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In terms of the percentage of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, this place performed better than the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The third category we assessed is long-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a grade of C in this category. Our long-term care ratings are crucial for residents in need of non-healthcare services such as personal care. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. We were pleased to find that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next area we looked at is short-term care. For this category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of C. Short-term care scores are crucial for prospective residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a wide spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. We were extremely impressed to find that this facility offers its residents substantially more physical therapist hours than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents that ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually below the national average.
