Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a great overall score, this facility received an A+ inspection grade. This grade is based on the facility's recent inspection reports. An A+ in this category is one of the best complements we can pay to a nursing home. Our inspection scores are tied to many pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that score well in this area typically have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few relatively minor dings are not necessarily something to panic about.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. Nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this facility an A. Our nursing rating features numerous subcategories. The most heavily weighted one is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility was awarded a superb score of A in our short-term care category. In computing our short-term care scores, we scrutinize the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. This area is typically a solid measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation services. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last category we looked at was long-term care. We gave this facility a solid grade in that category, with a B-. Even though this is not as favorable as some of this nursing home's other grades, it is nevertheless not a bad grade. Our long-term care ratings are more critical for folks requiring more conventional services associated with personal care. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. We were optimistic to find that this facility vaccinated 97.53695 percent of its patients against pneumonia. This nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
