Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of faring well overall, this facility also received nearly flawless government inspections. Therefore, it earned one of our best scores in that category with an A+. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area typically have few of these severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through 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 safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home received an elite score of A in our short-term care category. In calculating our short-term care scores, we scrutinize the facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This score is more often than not a useful measure of a facility's rehabilitation services. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another strong feature for this facility is that it received an impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B+. Our nursing grade analyzes several factors, most of which are based on quantities of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next category we scored is long-term care, where this nursing home received a grade of C. While this is its least impressive category rating, this is nevertheless not a bad grade. If you are seeking services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care grades. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to find that this facility vaccinated 98.32402 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
