Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of faring well overall, this nursing home also received a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in that area with an A+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite insignificant. While this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We also awarded this facility a grade of A for our long-term care score. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. After looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is far higher than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next most favorable area ended up being its short-term care score, where it received a grade of B-. Short-term care scores are important for individuals in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a wide spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents that returned home from this nursing home and found that this facility performed better here. In fact, this nursing home fared better than most facilities in the nation with 54.5 percent of its patients returning home.

Grade: C

The last area we scored is nursing. In this area, we awarded this nursing home a solid grade of C. This turned out to be this nursing home's weakest area. Nursing scores are tied to nurse staffing levels. This nursing home averages 3.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also weigh quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed better than average in this area.
