Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home also received an A+ inspection score. This is based on the facility's recent government inspections. An A+ in this area is one of the best complements we can pay to a nursing home. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This nursing home was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Nursing grades are largely associated with the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Turning our next category, this nursing home received a strong long-term care score. In fact, it received a grade of A- in this area. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. After we finished assessing the amount of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 95.87629 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is often a life threatening condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility does not take any chances. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last area we scored was short-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a solid grade of B-. This is this nursing home's weakest area. Short-term care grades are commonly used to grade a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to provide highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to have higher levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final metric we considered in this category is the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 3.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home. This figure was below average.
