Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We want to point out that this facility really outperformed its overall score in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in this category with a grade of A+. Our inspection grades weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this area usually have few severe deficiencies. Although this place had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. Nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this facility an B. When determining a facility's nursing grade, we weigh the amount of time nurses are seeing residents as well as the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility was awarded its next best category score in the category of long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a B- in this area, which is a decent grade. In determining our long-term care scores, we look at the assistance with daily living received by a facility's patients. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 91.86295 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is a few points lower than we expected but still a decent percentage. Nevertheless, this nursing home keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Switching gears to the final area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D in our short-term care category. This was the nursing home's weakest category score. Naturally, this score pulled down the nursing home's overall grade to some degree. Our short-term care ratings are arguably more critical for residents requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically mandates more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
