Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our inspections rating. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This facility received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies to be an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility is also strong in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B+. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. Our nursing score is largely associated with a nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home received a strong short-term care score as well. We gave it one of our higher scores in that area with a grade of B+. Our short-term care ratings are meaningful for residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing. This means a wide scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.3 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we looked at was long-term care, in which this nursing home was given a grade of B-. Even though this ended up being its poorest category score, this is nevertheless not a major area of concern. Our long-term care ratings are based on the facility's amount of nursing services. This means a vast scope of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine medical services. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is more than the vast majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
