Facility Inspections


To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Nurse Quality


Among its many impressive grades, this facility received an excellent nursing grade. We gave it an B+ in that category. Our nursing score features a host of subcategories. The most important one is the quantity of hours nurses spent with residents. This nursing home provides an impressive 4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, this facility also excelled in the quality measures we looked at. For example, it performed as well as any nursing home the state in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these metrics as good measures of the caliber of nursing care offered.

Short-term Care Quality


The next area we assessed is short-term care. This nursing home received an above average short-term care score, with a grade of B in this category. In determining our short-term care scores, we assess a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This score is typically a meaningful assessment of a facility's rehabilitation. We were pleased to find that this nursing home employs both registered nurses and physical therapists. The same can't be said for all nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality


The final category we assessed was long-term care, in which we gave it a strong grade of B. This nursing home truly didn't have any weak spots. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in long-term care tend to provide consistent around the clock care to ensure residents are well cared for. One of the statistics we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. It doesn't look like this facility submitted information about vaccinations. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
