Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this ended up being a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ in our inspections category. This is just about as good as it gets in this area. Inspection grades are based on many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this area have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This place received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This indicates that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to create an immediate threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 97.79412 percent of its patients. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. While it had 2.2 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted score was better than most facilities since it had some more complicated patients.

The last area we graded is nursing, where this facility was given a B-. This actually proved to be this nursing home's least impressive category. This is nevertheless not a bad grade. Our nursing rating weighs a handful of factors, however, the paramount one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This place provided just 0 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a relatively low total compared with most facilities. Lastly, we also baked a few quality measures into our nursing ratings. This nursing home was relatively weak in two of the major areas we focus on, with below average scores for minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. These areas are usually good indicators of the quality of nursing care provided.
