Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This nursing home received a quality overall score as described above, but we especially would like to point out its nearly flawless inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. Our inspection grades weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this area typically have few severe deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies an immediate 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-minus

Adding to this nursing home's list of achievements, it also was awarded a superb long-term care grade. We gave them an impressive strong of A- in this category. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 99.64789 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly is often a deadly ailment for nursing home residents so we prefer when a nursing home does not leave its residents vulnerable. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B+ for its nursing rating. This is a well above average score in this category. The nursing grade weighs a variety of datapoints. The most important variable is the amount of time nurses spend with patients. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 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 frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we looked at was short-term care, in which this facility was given a grade of B-. This ended up being this facility's least impressive area. This is still not a major area of concern. In crafting these short-term care scores, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to create a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 4.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
