Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of performing well overall, this nursing home earned nearly flawless government inspections. Consequently, it earned one of our highest grades in that category with an A+. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We also want to point out the fact that this facility was given an impressive score of A in our long-term care area. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care scores. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 74.054054 percent of its residents, which is a bit less than we anticipated. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep 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-plus

Turning to the third area, this nursing home also received a score of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is a well above average score in this area. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients that ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Moving on to the next category, this facility also excelled in the nursing category. In fact, we gave it a grade of B+ for this area. This finalized a first-rate report card. Nursing grades are primarily based on a facility's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
