Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded this facility an A+ for our inspection category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be relatively insignificant. While this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home fared well in the category of long-term care. As a result, we gave it a grade of A- for that category, which happens to be one of our higher grades. Facilities that excel in this category tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents out of the hospital. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also was given a strong short-term care score. In fact, we awarded it an above average score of B in this area. With our short-term care category, we seek to forge a valuable barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze the facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The final category we looked at was nursing, in which this nursing home was awarded a C. This was this facility's least impressive area. This is still not a bad grade. The nursing grade includes a number of data points. The most heavily weighted variable is the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a relatively low total compared with most other facilities. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this nursing home performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically a reliable indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place.
