Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to faring well overall, this nursing home also earned nearly flawless government inspections. As a result, it earned one of our best grades in that category with a grade of A+. Inspection ratings weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category generally have few of these severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also gave this nursing home a score of A+ for its short-term care grade. In our short-term care grade, we attempt to create a fair barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at a nursing home's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who returned home from this facility. We found that 7.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. There are a variety of datapoints within this area. Most of the criteria are tied to the quantity of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The last area we graded was long-term care, where this facility was given a B. While this ended up being its worst category grade, this is nevertheless a favorable rating. When facilities receive this type of score in long-term care it is a good sign for patient care and indicates that the facility is well-staffed with nurses aids. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents, which is significantly higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
