Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the reasons this place is a quality nursing home is that it received a very impressive inspection grade. In fact, inspections is its best category grade. In this area, we awarded it an A+. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility received an impressive long-term care score as well. We gave it one of our better grades in that category with a score of B. When nursing homes receive this type of grade in this category it is a good sign for patient care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia tragically can be a life threatening ailment for nursing home residents so we prefer when a nursing home doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. While this wasn't quite as good as some of its other category grades, this isn't a bad score either. The nursing score is based on several subcategories, but the paramount one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures. While this facility got docked a bit for nursing hours, it excelled in a few of these quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it performed well in this subcategory. This is typically an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of turning residents even once per day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final area we scored was short-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in that area. This is a perfectly acceptable grade in this area. In the area of short-term care, we try to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. It doesn't appear that this nursing home provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The final item we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents that returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. This figure was below the national average.
