Facility Inspections

Grade: A

One of the reasons this place is a strong nursing home is that it earned an impressive inspection rating. In fact, inspections turned out to be its best category grade. In this area, we gave this facility an A. Our inspection grades are tied to several pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this category typically have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple minor dings are not the end of the world.

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-. Nursing grades are primarily based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility is also strong in the category of long-term care, where it was given a score of B. It outpaced most facilities in this category. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents out of the hospital. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last area we assessed is short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of C in this area. In our short-term care score, we strive to forge a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze a nursing home's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 3.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
