Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a quality nursing home overall, this nursing home really excelled in our inspections category, where it earned an A+. Not many facilities performed better in that area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively minor. Although this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Among its many impressive grades, this nursing home earned an excellent nursing grade. We gave it a grade of B in that area. Our nursing rating focuses on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of licensure of those nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides 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 nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home was awarded an impressive short-term care grade as well. We awarded it one of our better grades in that area with a score of B. In the area of short-term care, we try to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 4.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last area we graded is long-term care, which is this nursing home's weakest area. We gave this facility a grade of D in this category. Naturally, this score hurt the facility's overall profile to some degree. If you are seeking anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is more than most nursing homes. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
