Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this nursing home earned near flawless government inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious 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: A-minus

We also want to note the fact that this nursing home was given a superb grade of A- in our long-term care category. If you are seeking services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care ratings. After looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 91.42857 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is a few points less than we were hoping for but still a decent figure. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this facility also received favorable nursing grades this year. In fact, we awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. Nursing scores are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place 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 many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Turning to the final area, this facility received an acceptable short-term care score. While this wasn't as dominant as a few of its other grades, this is still not a terrible score. In computing our short-term care scores, we size up the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other licensed professionals. This rating is typically a useful measure of a nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this place. The last datapoint we considered in this area is the number of residents that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.1 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure was below the national average.
