Facility Inspections

Grade: A

We also wanted to point out that this nursing home has received nearly flawless inspections recently. We awarded them an A in this category. Our inspection grades are based on many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this category have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This nursing home was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to resident 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-minus

On the list of its many dominant grades, this nursing home received an excellent long-term care grade. In fact, we gave it a score of A- in this category. Facilities that excel in long-term care typically provide patients with better supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents, which is significantly higher than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to another strength for this facility, we awarded them one of our stronger grades in our short-term care category as well, with a B+. Short-term care scores are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 4.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

The next category we looked at was nursing, where this facility was awarded a B. Believe it or not, this is this nursing home's least impressive category. A nursing home is doing something right when it's worst score still beats out most other facilities. Our nursing grade analyzes the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed certain nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these areas as reliable measures of the caliber of nursing care provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.
