Facility Inspections


This nursing home received a strong overall grade as described above, but we especially wanted to emphasize its nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We gave it an A- in this category. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. 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 access to the deficiency related data, it is a challenge to grade it in the area of inspections.

Nurse Quality


Among this facility's other strengths is its elite nursing grade. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of A-. Our nursing score is primarily tied to the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. With 4.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day, this nursing home surpassed the overwhelming majority of facilities. Finally, this place also excelled in the quality measures we assessed. For example, it fared as well as any facility the country in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We view these areas as reliable indicators of the caliber of nursing care provided.

Short-term Care Quality


Turning to an additional strength for this nursing home, we gave them one of our more favorable grades in our short-term care category as well, with a grade of B+. Our short-term care scores are critical for people in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes a broad scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. This facility provides more services with registered nurses and physical therapists than most facilities we looked at. The last datapoint we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality


The last area we rated was this nursing home's weakest area. However, even in its weakest link we still gave it a respectable grade of C for long-term care. For prospective patients seeking a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. One of the data points we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccines. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this facility submitted information on its vaccination levels. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
