Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To pair with its strong overall score, we gave this facility an A+ for the area of inspections. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some can be quite minor. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this facility also was awarded favorable short-term care scores this year. Indeed, we awarded them one of our stronger scores in that category, with a grade of B+. Our short-term care grade is often employed to judge a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must offer better levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. 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, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. This wasn't quite on par with some of its other category grades mentioned above. Our nursing score is largely based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a relatively low total compared with most other nursing homes. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically a reliable indicator that a place has quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next category we graded is long-term care. We gave this facility a grade of D in long-term care, leaving this as the facility's weakest category grade. For patients looking for a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 97.07317 percent of its patients, which is better than the vast majority of nursing homes. To our surprise, this facility also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
