Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of receiving a great overall score, this facility also received an A+ inspection score. This grade is based on its recent government inspections. An A+ in this category is one of the best complements we can offer a facility. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this category typically have few severe deficiencies. While this place had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This facility also was strong in the area of short-term care, where it received a grade of A. Few facilities fared better in this area. Our short-term care scores are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a wide spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.8 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to the next area, this facility also received a score of B+ for its long-term care rating. This is a well above average score in this area. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccinations. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a proven method to minimize unnecessary hospitalizations for the elderly population. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we graded was this facility's worst category. However, even in its weakest link we still gave it a respectable grade of B- for our nursing category. Our nursing score consists of several data points, but the paramount consideration is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This place averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is a very low figure. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this facility actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally an indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.
