Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this place an A- for the area of inspections. Inspection scores are based on pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this area tend to have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. We weren't able to track down information on deficiency's for this nursing home. Without having the deficiency related data for this nursing home, it is challenging to fully evaluate the place in terms of this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility an A-. Nursing ratings are heavily correlated with quality and quantity of nursing care. This facility provided 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 place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home was given a strong short-term care score as well. We gave it one of our higher grades in that area with a score of B+. In forming these short-term care scores, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to devise a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last category we analyzed is long-term care. We gave this nursing home an acceptable grade in that area, with a grade of C. Even though this isn't as strong as a few of this nursing home's other scores, it is still nothing to be ashamed of. In our long-term care score, we look at the sheer quantity of services provided by a nursing home, as well as a series of qualitative metrics. One of the factors we considered after nursing hours is vaccines. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this nursing home submitted information about vaccinations. Finally, this nursing home excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
