Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

One of the reasons this ended up being a strong nursing home is that it received a very impressive inspection score. Inspections turned out to be its best category. In that category, we gave it an A-. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home is also strong in the area of short-term care, where it was given a grade of B+. It performed more favorably than most nursing homes in this category. With our short-term care category, we seek to craft a valuable gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at a nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. We were not able to find information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that 5.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also received a strong nursing score. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this area. We looked at the qualifications of nurses employed by the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses spent with patients, in calculating our score in this category. This particular nursing home provided 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 place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Turning to the last category, this facility was awarded an acceptable long-term care score of C. With our long-term care grade, we weigh the volume of care offered by a nursing home, along with some quality metrics. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. We were concerned by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated just 90.21739 percent of its residents for pneumonia. On a more positive note, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
