Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Among this nursing home's other accomplishments is its elite short-term care score. It received one of our better grades in that category, with a score of A. In computing these short-term care grades, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to create a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we assessed in this area is the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that 6.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Turning to the third category, this facility also received a grade of B for its long-term care rating. This is an above average score in this category. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 80.26316 percent of its patients, which is slightly less than we anticipated. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we scored is nursing. We awarded this facility a solid grade in this category, with a grade of B-. While this was not as high as some of its other grades, it is nevertheless nothing to be ashamed of. Our nursing grade is primarily associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This figure is far below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
