Nurse Quality

Grade: A

One of the reasons this place received a great overall grade is that it received a very impressive nursing score. Nursing actually turned out to be its best category. In that area, we gave this facility an A. Our nursing rating is largely associated with the facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This facility also excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we gave it an A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. This is one of the few nursing homes with an overall score in this range which received multiple category grades this high. Inspection grades are based on several items found on the a nursing home's inspection reports. Places that receive favorable grades in this category tend to have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home is also strong in the area of short-term care, where it was given a score of B+. It performed better than most nursing homes in this area. Short-term care scores are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a broad range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last item we assessed in this area is the number of residents that ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that 5.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Switching gears to the last category, we gave this facility a D for the area of long-term care. This is the facility's least impressive category rating. Unfortunately, this grade pulled down the nursing home's overall profile to some degree. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means the facility didn't perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We were a bit worried that this facility vaccinated only 81.914894 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this facility was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
