Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of earning a strong overall score, this facility also received excellent government inspections recently. We gave it one of our highest scores in that category, with an A. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor dings aren't something to panic about.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also received a very impressive nursing grade. In fact, this turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A-. Nursing grades are primarily tied to the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 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 nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home 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: A-minus

This facility also received a very impressive short-term care score. Indeed, this turned out to be its third most impressive category score. In that area, this facility received a grade of A-. Our short-term care scores are probably most meaningful for those needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 5.4 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last area we looked at was long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a decent grade of C. This actually ended up being this facility's worst category. Our long-term care grades are critical for people seeking personal care. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is better than the majority of nursing homes. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
