Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this nursing home performed at an even higher level in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A-. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Adding to this facility's list of strengths, it also was given a high-end short-term care grade. We gave them an elite strong of A- in this category. In determining these short-term care scores, we analyze 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 sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of patients that were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 6.5 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Turning to the next category, this nursing home also earned a grade of B for its long-term care rating. This is an above average grade in this category. If you are looking for anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care scores. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 84.96042 percent of its residents. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, at least this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The last area we analyzed is nursing. We gave this nursing home a C in that area. Nursing grades are heavily correlated with quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. It performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
