Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Inspection ratings are based on datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that score well 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. This nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to patient safety or health. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its fine assessment, this facility also was awarded a dominant short-term care score, with a score of A. In computing our short-term care ratings, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to devise a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last metric we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 6.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. There are a host of criteria within this area. Many of the datapoints are tied to the quantity of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final area we scored was this facility's poorest category. Nevertheless, even in its worst category we still awarded it a respectable grade of B- for long-term care. For long-term care residents, the primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. After we finished looking at the quantity of nursing care, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. We were pleased to find that this facility vaccinates 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
