Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we gave this nursing home a grade of A for the area of inspections. Inspection grades account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this category generally have few severe deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to patient health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its impressive resume, this nursing home also excelled in the area of nursing. In fact, we gave it a grade of B+ for that category. Nursing ratings are mostly associated with a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as employing a system of moving a resident more often.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home is also strong in the area of short-term care, where it was given a score of B. It performed better than most facilities in this category. Short-term care ratings are based on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a broad scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 4.6 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next category we looked at is long-term care. In this category, we awarded this nursing home a C. In computing our long-term care ratings, we scrutinize the personal care offered to a facility's residents. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Fortunately, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 98.765434 percent of its patients. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
