Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the reasons this place is a strong facility is that it received a very impressive inspection score. In fact, inspections turned out to be its best category. In this area, we awarded it an A+. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This means that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies to be an imminent threat to resident 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

Another one of this nursing home's above average category grades came in the area of long-term care. We awarded them one of our higher scores in that category, with a score of B+. In a long-term care setting, the primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. After we finished assessing the volume of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 91.60305 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also received an impressive short-term care score. In fact, we gave it an above average score of B in this category. Short-term care scores are meaningful for residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires additional highly-skilled nursing. This means a vast spectrum of services, ranging 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 all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who returned home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last category we analyzed was nursing. We gave this nursing home a B- in that category. In computing our nursing grades, we weigh both nursing hours and the training levels of those nurses. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, while this facility got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in some of our quality measures. With less than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it did very well in this subcategory.
