Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a great facility overall, it also earned A+ health inspections recently. Its inspections are virtually perfect. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively insignificant. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also gave this nursing home a grade of A- for our long-term care score. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. One of the datapoints we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 98.4375 percent of its residents. This is a reliable method to minimize unnecessary deaths for the aged 65 and up population. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facilities third best category is short-term care. We awarded it a B- in this area. This is basically a slightly below average score in this category. In calculating our short-term care grades, we analyze a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This score is considered to be a solid measure of a nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. We were not able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Finally, we considered the number of patients that were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The final area we analyzed was nursing, where this nursing home received a grade of C. This turned out to be this facility's worst category. This is still not a poor grade. There are a host of criteria within this area. Many of the factors are tied to nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, which is not an impressive total. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it scored well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the number of hours of care offered.
