Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of receiving a strong overall grade, this nursing home received an A+ inspection score. This is based on the facility's recent inspection reports. An A+ in this category is one of the highest complements we can pay to a facility. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite insignificant. While this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A- in our nursing category. Nursing ratings are mostly associated with a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 3.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some quality-based measures in this category. This facility fared well in some of the quality measures we assessed. By way of illustration, in terms of the percentage of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, this facility performed better than the national average. This is generally an indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided with better nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Additionally, this facility also was awarded favorable long-term care grades this year. In fact, we awarded them one of our stronger grades in that area, with a score of B+. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are kept in good health. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 94.405594 percent of its patients, which is better than most nursing homes. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The final category we scored was short-term care, in which this nursing home was awarded a grade of B. Although this ended up being its least impressive category grade, this is still an impressive rating. Short-term care ratings are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. One of this nursing home's strengths is registered nurse hours. We found that it offers more care from registered nurses to its residents than most facilities. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that it performed decently in this area, with 47.9 percent of its patients returning home.
