Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to being a quality nursing home overall, this nursing home also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of A. Few nursing homes fared better in that category. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B. Our nursing score is primarily tied to the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by having a system of turning residents more frequently.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we looked at is long-term care, where this nursing home was given a grade of B- in this area. If you are looking for services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. One of the factors we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccines. Fortunately, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Switching gears to the next category, this facility received a decent short-term care score of C. In the area of short-term care, we strive to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 4.3 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
