Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a great overall grade, this facility also received A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections were virtually flawless. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively minor. While this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

An additional quality feature for this nursing home is that it was given a very positive long-term care grade. In fact, this ended up being its second best category grade. In this category, we gave this facility a grade of B+. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are well cared for. Once we concluded our assessment of the amount of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is too frequently a dangerous health condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a facility doesn't take any chances. Clearly, this nursing home 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 one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B for its nursing rating. This is a well above average score in this category. The nursing rating is based on a host of factors. The most important factor is the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients. This particular nursing home provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final category we graded is short-term care. We awarded this facility a decent grade in this area, with a grade of B-. While this is not as strong as many of this nursing home's other grades, it is still not the end of the world. Our short-term care grades are probably more meaningful for people requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more skilled nursing services. This means not merely nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this facility submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The last item we considered in this area is the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.
