Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home received a quality overall score as described above, but we especially want to point out its excellent inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this area. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our nursing grade. Nursing ratings are mostly tied to a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next most favorable area turned out to be short-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. Our short-term care ratings are presumably most meaningful for people needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final datapoint we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final area we graded was long-term care. We gave it a C in that category. This is a perfectly acceptable grade in this category. In our long-term care rating, we assess the sheer quantity of care provided by a nursing home, along with a few quality statistics. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. As it turns out, this nursing home provided the vaccine to just 78.057556 percent of its patients, which is somewhat concerning. Nevertheless, this nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
