Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of receiving a strong overall score, this nursing home also received first-rate health inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our best scores in that category, with an A. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this category typically have few of these severe deficiencies. We weren't able to locate information on deficiency's for this nursing home. We wish we had more data for this nursing home. Without all of the deficiency related data, it is difficult to grade this facility in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Among this facility's other accomplishments is its first-rate short-term care score. We awarded them one of our strongest grades in that category, with a score of A. In our short-term care score, we strive to forge a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze a nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. We weren't able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 7.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility was given an impressive long-term care score as well. We awarded it one of our better scores in that area with a score of B+. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in this category tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure patients are well cared for. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents healthy. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last area we rated is nursing, where this facility received a B-. This actually turned out to be this nursing home's least impressive category. This is nevertheless not a bad grade. Our nursing grade includes several components, many of which are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident each day, which is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
