Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a strong facility overall, this facility especially excelled in our inspections category, where it earned an A+. Few nursing homes performed better in that category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively minor. This nursing home was assessed 9 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also received a favorable long-term care score. Indeed, we awarded it an above average score of B+ in this category. When facilities receive this type of score in this category it is a good sign for resident care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 96.55173 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This facility is also strong in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. Nursing grades are tied to quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home averages 3 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 facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final category we assessed was short-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a C. Short-term care scores are based on a facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a broad range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. Finally, we considered the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that it performed respectably in this area with 47.9 percent of its patients returning home.
