Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to faring well overall, this facility also earned nearly flawless government inspections. Consequently, it received one of our best grades in that area with an A+. Inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this area usually have very few severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also was awarded a favorable long-term care grade. In fact, we gave it an above average grade of B+ in this area. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. One of the datapoints we considered after nursing hours was vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 98.130844 percent of its residents. This is a great way to avoid negative health outcomes for the elderly population. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home was awarded an impressive short-term care grade as well. We awarded it one of our better grades in that area with a score of B+. Our short-term care grades are probably most meaningful for those needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this facility provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

The last area we looked at was nursing. This facility was given a better than average nursing grade this year, with a B. Even though this is not as strong as a few of its other category grades, this remains one of our better scores in this area. We analyzed the levels of nurses at the nursing home, in addition to the number of hours those nurses were with patients, in determining our rating in this category. This particular nursing home provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
