Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To pair with a favorable overall grade, we gave this nursing home an A+ for our inspection category. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not 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.

Grade: A-minus

Most of these factors are tied to staffing levels. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as employing a system of turning patients more frequently.

Grade: B-plus

In the final category we graded, this nursing home was given a very favorable grade of B+ in our short-term care category. With this score, the facility wrapped up a first-rate profile. In determining our short-term care grades, we size up a facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. This grade is frequently a fair measure of the facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients that returned home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
