Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To pair with its favorable overall score, we gave this facility an A+ for our inspection category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some can be quite minor. This place received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to resident safety or health. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We also wanted to note the fact that this facility was awarded a top-shelf grade of A in our short-term care category. In the category of short-term care, we strive to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. It does not look like this facility submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that 6.8 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to our next category, this facility also earned a grade of B+ for its long-term care rating. This is a well above average score in this area. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. After assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is significantly higher than most nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

The final category we looked at is nursing, in which this facility was given a grade of B. Believe it or not, this proved to be this facility's least impressive area. A facility is doing something right when their lowest score still beats out most nursing homes. The nursing rating includes many subcategories, but the primary consideration is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This particular nursing home provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
