Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

To go along with its favorable overall grade, we gave this facility a grade of A- for the area of inspections. Inspection scores are based on many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this category 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 a few deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. Nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this facility an B+. The nursing score weighs several subcategories. The most heavily weighted variable is the amount of time nurses spent with patients. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of moving a patient more frequently.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility received an impressive long-term care grade as well. We awarded it one of our higher scores in that area with a grade of B. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia tragically can be a life or death health condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home does not take any chances. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The last category we scored was short-term care, where this facility was awarded a grade of B. This facility ended up being relatively strong in each category we looked at. Our short-term care scores are believed to be more critical for folks in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this facility submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
