Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a great overall grade, this facility also received A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections were virtually flawless. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This place was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to patient safety or health. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for its nursing grade. Our nursing score is mostly associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also performed well in the area of short-term care, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. In the area of short-term care, we strive to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final statistic we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next category we looked at is long-term care. In this area, we awarded this nursing home a decent grade of C. This actually proved to be this nursing home's weakest area. If you are looking for services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care scores. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated 90.74074 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is quite a few points lower than the national average. Nevertheless, this place keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
