Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this place also excelled in the category of inspections, where it received an A+. Few facilities performed better in this area. Inspection scores account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this category usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility also received a strong long-term care score. Indeed, we awarded them a B in that category, which happens to be one of our more favorable scores. Nursing homes that do well in this category typically are well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is far higher than the average nursing home. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.78 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. Our nursing rating analyzes the facility's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of licensure of the nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. Based on the CMS data, this nursing home offers 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in some quality-focused statistics. Specifically, we look at the percent of residents who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these areas as good measures of the quality of nursing care, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Turning to our final category, this nursing home was given a decent short-term care score of C. In our short-term care rating, we strive to create a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze the nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found it was above average in this area with 50 percent of its patients returning home.
