Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of faring well overall, this nursing home also earned nearly flawless government inspections. Consequently, it earned one of our best scores in that area with a grade of A+. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies an immediate risk 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

This nursing home also was awarded an impressive long-term care score. In fact, we awarded it an above average score of B+ in this area. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in this category tend to provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are well cared for. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 94.90741 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home received an impressive short-term care grade as well. We gave it one of our better scores in that area with a grade of B. In forming these short-term care ratings, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to create a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility 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 considered the number of patients who eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

The last category we analyzed was nursing. This facility received a strong nursing score in our assessment, with a grade of B. This nursing home truly does not have any weak spots. Our nursing score looks at the facility's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of skill of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this nursing home 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 generally be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a system of moving residents at least once a day.
