Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this facility 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. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility is also strong in the area of long-term care, where it was given a grade of B+. It performed more favorably than most facilities in this category. When facilities 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. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. While this didn't quite match its scores in some of the categories discussed above, this is still a decent score. The nursing grade analyzes several components, but the primary one is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day, which is not an impressive total. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically a reliable indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last category we graded was short-term care. For that category, we awarded this facility a C. Our short-term care scores are critical for residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This means a wide range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We weren't able to locate registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this nursing home. The final statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents that returned home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.
