Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a strong overall rating, this nursing home received an A+ inspection grade. This grade is based on its recent inspection reports. An A+ in this area is one of the best complements we can offer a facility. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This place was assessed 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this nursing home also was given favorable long-term care grades in our assessment. In fact, we awarded it one of our better grades in that category, with a grade of B+. For prospective residents seeking a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 80.861244 percent of its residents. This is slightly below what we were hoping for. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B. Nursing grades are tied to quality and quantity of nursing care. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final area we looked at was short-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a decent grade of B-. This turned out to be this facility's weakest area. Short-term care ratings are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this nursing home. The last statistic we considered in this category is the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
