Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of faring well overall, this facility received nearly flawless government inspections. Therefore, it received one of our highest scores in that category with an A+. Our inspection grades weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this category tend to have very few severe deficiencies. This place was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies to create an imminent threat to resident safety or health. 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 emphasize the fact that this nursing home was given a high-end grade of A- in our long-term care area. Facilities that excel in this category typically provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 99.44444 percent of its residents, which is far higher than most nursing homes. Lastly, this place 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

Turning to our next category, this facility also received a score of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is a well above average score in this area. Short-term care grades are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a vast scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final measure we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 5.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last area we rated was this facility's poorest category. However, even in its worst category we still awarded it a respectable grade of B- in our nursing category. The nursing rating consists of a handful of data points, however, the paramount one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
