Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our inspections rating. Inspection grades account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this area usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. While this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of A-. Our nursing grade is based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of skill of those nurses as well as the amount of time spent with residents. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also received a strong short-term care grade. In fact, we gave it an above average grade of B+ in this area. Our short-term care grades are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a vast scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of patients that returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.1 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Turning to the fourth category, this facility was given a respectable long-term care score. Even though this isn't nearly as impressive as some of its other category grades, this is truly not the end of the world. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home vaccinated 99.12281 percent of its residents, which is an above average percentage. This facility keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
