Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite minor. While this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Adding to its profile, this facility also received a grade of B for its short-term care rating. This is an above average grade in this category. Our short-term care grades are likely most important for those requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This means not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home provided registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that 4.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Additionally, this facility also received favorable long-term care grades this year. In fact, we gave them one of our better grades in that category, with a score of B. Facilities that excel in long-term care typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is much higher than most nursing homes. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last category we scored is nursing. We awarded this facility a grade of B- in that area. Our nursing score is largely tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, our nursing ratings also factor in some quality-focused measures. We especially like to look at the percent of patients who suffered pressure ulcers and major falls. These data points are decent measures of the quality of nursing care, since superior care can reduce these issues.
