Facility Inspections

Grade: A

With an overall grade this high, it should come as no surprise that this facility performed well in the area of inspections, where it earned an A. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this category tend to have few severe deficiencies. This place received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

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. Our nursing grade is largely associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to 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: A-minus

This nursing home also was elite in the category of long-term care, where it received a grade of A-. Not many nursing homes performed better in this category. If you are looking for services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care ratings. After looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 92.35294 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be a bit less than we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. 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 less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

The final category we analyzed is short-term care, where this nursing home was given a B+. This finished off a very impressive profile. Not many nursing homes received a B+ or higher in every single category. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last metric we looked at in this area is the number of patients who returned home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
