Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to earning a strong overall score, this facility fared even better in our inspections category which is associated with the facility's recent inspections. We gave it an A+ for that category, which is one of our best grades. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Contributing to its profile, this facility also received a score of B+ for its long-term care rating. This is a well above average grade in this area. If you are looking for services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care ratings. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 78.89688 percent of its residents. This is somewhat lower than we anticipated but still a decent percentage. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility's third best category was its short-term care score, where it was awarded a grade of C. In the area of short-term care, we strive to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final datapoint we considered in this area is the percentage of patients that were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The next area we assessed is nursing. We awarded this facility a C in that category. In determining our nursing grades, we look at both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home averages just 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, our nursing ratings also consider quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses aids to assist its residents.
