Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the reasons this place ended up being a quality nursing home is that it earned an A+ inspection grade. This is just about as good as it gets in this very important category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some are quite insignificant. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This means CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few relatively minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also was awarded a dominant short-term care grade. This actually is its second best category score. In that area, this facility received a grade of A-. In determining these short-term care grades, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to formulate a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients that were able to return home from the facility. We found that 5.9 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-plus

This nursing home is also above average in the area of long-term care, where it was given a grade of B+. It performed more favorably than most facilities in this area. When facilities receive this type of score in this category it is a good sign for resident care and indicates that the facility is well-staffed with nurses aids. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 96.383514 percent of its patients, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last area we looked at is nursing. This facility was awarded a very good nursing score this year, with a grade of B-. Although this wasn't as good as some of its other grades, this is still a respectable score for that category. Our nursing score is primarily tied to the facility's nurse staffing. This facility provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Lastly, while this facility got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of our quality measures. With less than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this metric.
