Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded this facility an A+ for inspections. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this area generally have few severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its impressive performance in other areas, we awarded this facility a score of A for its short-term care grade. Short-term care grades are typically employed to assess a facility's rehabilitation services. To offer highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have higher levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that 5.7 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Among its many impressive grades, this facility received an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A in that category. Nursing scores are based largely on quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Switching gears to the final area, this facility also performed well in the long-term care category. In fact, we gave it a B+ in this category. This rounded out a very impressive report card. Facilities that receive this type of score in this category tend to provide consistent around the clock care to ensure residents are well cared for. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 98.61751 percent of its patients, which is very impressive. Pneumonia can be a dangerous illness for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
