Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to point out the fact that this facility has received near flawless inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A+ in this area. Our inspection grades are tied to several datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that excel in this category have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

An additional strong feature for this nursing home is that it received a very positive short-term care score. Indeed, this proved to be its second best category grade. In this area, we awarded this nursing home a B+. Short-term care ratings are crucial for prospective residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires additional skilled nursing services. This includes a vast spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B+ for its nursing rating. This is a well above average score in this category. In computing a facility's nursing grade, we assess the quantity of hours nurses are with patients as well as the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last area we looked at is long-term care, where this facility was awarded a grade of C. This actually was this facility's worst category. This is nevertheless not a major area of concern. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. One of the criteria we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Thankfully, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 95 percent of its patients. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
