Facility Inspections

Grade: A

One of the reasons this ended up being a quality facility is that it received an impressive inspection score. In fact, inspections is its best category. In this area, we gave it an A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are quite minor. While this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility is also strong in the category of short-term care, where it was given a grade of B. It outperformed most facilities in this category. In crafting these short-term care scores, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to create a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they 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 facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B for its nursing rating. This is a well above average score in this category. In computing a facility's nursing score, we look at the quantity of hours nurses are with residents and the level of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final area we scored was long-term care. We gave this facility a grade of B- in that area. Our long-term care grades are more meaningful for folks in need of more conventional services associated with personal care. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 91.51193 percent of its patients, which is somewhat lower than we expected. Fortunately, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
