Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this nursing home also earned first-rate health inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our higher grades in this area, with an A+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. This nursing home was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to be an immediate risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this nursing home's above average category scores came in the area of long-term care. We gave them one of our more positive grades in that category, with a grade of B. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 89.2405 percent of its patients, which is a few points below what we expected. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The third category we analyzed is short-term care. This nursing home received a favorable short-term care grade, with a grade of B in the area. In determining these short-term care scores, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to create a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. We weren't able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final item we considered in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's least impressive category was nursing, which is the final area we looked at. In this category, we awarded this facility a D. Nursing grades are primarily associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This facility fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
