Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To pair with a favorable overall score, we awarded this place an A+ for inspections. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. It does not appear that we have information on deficiency's for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

This exemplary facility also fared very well in the area of short-term care, where it received a score of A+. Few facilities fared better in this area. Short-term care grades are meaningful for individuals looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. This means a wide scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of patients who returned home from this nursing home. We found that 6.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Contributing to its fine assessment, this nursing home also was awarded a strong long-term care score, with a grade of A. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in long-term care tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure residents are kept in good health. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 97.93814 percent of its patients, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly is often a life or death ailment for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

In the final category we looked at, this facility was given a very strong grade of A in our nursing category. With this score, the nursing home rounded out a straight A profile. There are several subcategories within this grade. Most of the factors reflect staffing levels. This nursing home averages 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
