To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find deficiency counts for this nursing home. We wish we had more information about this nursing home. Without having the deficiency data, it ended up being difficult to fully grade this nursing home in the inspections category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this facility's quality category grades came in the category of short-term care. We awarded them one of our stronger grades in that area, with a grade of B+. In computing our short-term care ratings, we size up the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. This grade is often a useful measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation. Unfortunately, we were not able to find information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccinations. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 46.13402 percent of its residents. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final category we rated is nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in that area. This is a fair grade in this category. Our nursing rating is primarily tied to the nursing home's nurse staffing. This place provided just 0 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a relatively low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, nursing ratings also factor in quality-based metrics, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this facility actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often a good indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its residents.
