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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

The third area we analyzed is short-term care. This facility was given a favorable short-term care score, with a grade of B+ in this category. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final measure we considered in this category is the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Moving on to our next category, this facility also excelled in our nursing category. In fact, we gave it a grade of B+ in that area. This topped off a very strong report card. Nursing scores are heavily correlated with quality and quantity of nursing care. This nursing home provides 0.8 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 typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
