Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a first rate nursing home overall, this nursing home performed well in the area of inspections, where it received an A+. Few facilities performed as well in this category. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This indicates that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also was awarded a first-rate long-term care grade. Indeed, this is this facility's second best category score. In that area, we awarded this facility a score of A. Facilities that excel in this category typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is often a life or death ailment for nursing home residents so we like it when a facility doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Turning the page to our third category, this facility was awarded an excellent short-term care score. In fact, it received a score of A in this area. Our short-term care scores are believed to be more critical for folks in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more skilled nursing services. This includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. We were not able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 6.1 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

The next category we scored is nursing. This facility received an above average nursing score this year, with a B. While this wasn't as impressive as many of its other grades, this is still one of the better grades for this area. Our nursing rating is based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of licensure of those nurses as well as the amount of time spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also factored a few quality measures into our nursing grades. This place was relatively weak in two of the major areas we focus on, with below average scores for minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. These areas are generally reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care provided.
