Grade: A-plus

On top of receiving a great overall score, this nursing home also earned first-rate inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better scores in this area, with an A+. Inspection grades are based on many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that score well in this category typically have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to be an imminent threat to resident health or safety. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its impressive profile, this place also excelled in the category of nursing. In fact, we awarded it an B+ for that category. Our nursing grade focuses on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of training of the nurses and the amount of time spent with patients. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's third most favorable area ended up being short-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a B-. Our short-term care grades are probably most important for people in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. It does not look like this facility provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last measure we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who returned home from the facility. We found that just 4.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we rated is long-term care. We awarded this facility a B- in that category. In the category of long-term care, we analyze the quantity of services offered by a nursing home, rather than more healthcare-oriented services. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 97.75785 percent of its patients. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
