Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this facility performed even better in the area of inspections which is associated with the nursing home's recent inspections. We awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection grades weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this area typically have few of these severe deficiencies. While this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an B+. Our nursing rating includes a variety of datapoints. The most important variable is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. This particular nursing home provided 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 place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

In addition, this facility also was awarded favorable long-term care scores in our assessment. Indeed, we awarded it one of our better grades in that category, with a grade of B. Nursing homes that excel in this category typically are well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 99.60159 percent of its residents, which is much higher than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next area we graded is short-term care, in which this facility was given a grade of B. This nursing home did not end up having any weak spots. Our short-term care ratings are critical for individuals seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a broad spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. We were not able to locate registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.1 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
