Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to earning a great overall score, this facility also received an A+ short-term care grade. Our short-term care grades are vital for patients looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a broad spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This facility has earned near flawless health inspections recently. We gave them an impressive grade of A in this category. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

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. Our nursing score analyzes the facility's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of skill of those nurses and the number of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Moving on to our final area, this nursing home was awarded a strong long-term care rating. Although this is not quite as good as a few of its other grades, this is nevertheless one of our stronger scores we offer. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in this category typically provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure patients are well cared for. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccinations. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. This is a great way to minimize negative health outcomes for the nursing home population. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
