Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a great overall grade, this facility also received A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections were virtually flawless. Our inspection ratings are based on many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this area tend to have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This facility received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies an immediate threat to patient safety or health. A few relatively minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Contributing to this nursing home's list of achievements, it also was awarded a first-rate short-term care grade. We awarded them an elite grade of A- in this category. Short-term care grades are often used to grade a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to offer quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide higher levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.8 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Among this facility's other strengths is its elite nursing grade. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of A-. Our nursing grade analyzes a handful of datapoints, but the most important consideration is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. 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 place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last category we assessed is long-term care, which is this nursing home's least impressive category. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in this category. However, we would not judge this nursing home based only on this category, as it received a few impressive grades in other areas. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in this category likely don't provide the type of consistent 24/7 care that some other facilities provide. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 77.914116 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
