Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a first rate nursing home overall, this nursing home performed well in the area of inspections, where it received an A+. Few places fared as well in this category. Our inspection scores are tied to many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this category tend to have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. Nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an A. Our nursing rating assesses quite a few subcategories, but the most important one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also performed well in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a score of A-. Few facilities fared better in this area. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care typically provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is much higher than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Turning to the next area, this nursing home was awarded a very strong short-term care rating. We awarded it a grade of A- in this category, resulting in this facility receiving straight A's. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
