Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home received a quality overall grade as described above, but we especially wanted to point out its excellent inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Inspection grades are based on items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this category tend to have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility performed well in our long-term care category. As a result, we awarded it a score of A- for that category, which turns out to be one of our best grades. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care typically provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 99.19355 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia tragically can be a deadly health condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't take any chances. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home is also strong in the category of short-term care, where it was given a grade of B. It outperformed most nursing homes in this area. Our short-term care grades are based on the nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a wide scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Turning to our final area, this nursing home was awarded a decent nursing score of C. The nursing grade consists of a handful of data points, however, the most important one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is a very low figure. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures. Although this place got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of these quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this subcategory. This can be a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a system of moving a patient even once per day.
