Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To pair with its strong overall score, we gave this nursing home a grade of A for the area of inspections. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Contributing to this facility's list of strengths, it also was awarded a fine short-term care score. We gave them an elite strong of A- in this category. Our short-term care grades are crucial for patients in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional skilled nursing services. This means a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last metric we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 6.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Turning to the category of nursing care, this facility didn't perform quite as well in this area as some of the categories discussed above. Nevertheless, a grade of B- in this category is by no means a bad score. We scrutinized the levels of nurses employed by the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time the nurses spent with residents, in determining our rating in this area. This facility averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day, which is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Moving on to the last area, this nursing home received a grade of C in long-term care, which is a respectable score. Long-term care scores are vital for residents needing personal care. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 75.30121 percent of its patients. This is several points less than what we expected. Nevertheless, this facility excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
