Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this place turned out to be a great nursing home is it received an A+ in our inspections category. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Inspection scores are tied to datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that receive favorable grades in this category tend to have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility was given an impressive short-term care grade as well. We gave it one of our better scores in that category with a score of B+. Short-term care ratings are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a broad spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 6.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also was awarded a favorable long-term care score. Indeed, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this area. For residents seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 79.45737 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is slightly less than we expected but still a reasonably acceptable figure. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, at least this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Moving on to our final area, this nursing home was awarded a decent nursing grade. While this was not as impressive as some of its other grades, this is really not a bad grade. When calculating a nursing home's nursing rating, we weigh the amount of time nurses commit to patients as well as the levels of training of those nurses. This place averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is not an impressive total. Finally, while this nursing home got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of our quality metrics. With less than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this area.
