Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home also earned an A+ inspection grade. This is based on its recent government inspections. An A+ in this category is one of the best complements we can pay to a facility. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. We weren't able to track down deficiency data for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its elite performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for its long-term care grade. For long-term care residents, the primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. On the whole this looks like a good option in terms of its long-term care rating.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another strong feature for this facility is that it received an impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B+. The nursing rating considers numerous subcategories. The most heavily weighted one is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

The fourth area we graded is short-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a grade of B+. This topped off a very favorable report card. Only a select few nursing homes received a B+ or higher in each of our categories. Our short-term care grade is often employed to grade a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to have quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally must feature better levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final metric we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
