Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to being a top notch nursing home overall, this place also performed well in inspections, where it earned an A. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. Arguably the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another strong feature for this nursing home is that it was given an impressive long-term care score. Indeed, this turned out to be its second best category score. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of B+. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. After looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 84 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which happens to be a few points lower than we anticipated but still a decent figure. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also received a strong nursing score. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this area. The nursing grade weighs several subcategories. The most heavily weighted variable is the amount of time nurses spend with patients. This nursing home averages 0 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 facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Switching gears to the last category, this nursing home also performed admirably in the short-term care category. In fact, we gave it a grade of B+ for this area. This wrapped up a very impressive profile. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on a facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. We weren't able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The last statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of patients that 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.
