Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being an elite facility overall, this nursing home also performed well in the area of inspections, where it received an A+. Very few facilities performed as well in this area. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This facility received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so favorably is that it was awarded a dominant long-term care grade. Indeed, long-term care ended up being its second most impressive category grade. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a score of A. Facilities that do well in long-term care typically provide patients with closer supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 99.65987 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia tragically can be a life or death health condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home does not take any chances. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

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 score assesses many datapoints, however, the most important consideration is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility 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: D

The final category we graded was short-term care, which ended up being this nursing home's least impressive category. We awarded this nursing home a D in this category. Nevertheless, you should not assess this nursing home based solely on one weak category, as it was awarded several high-end grades in other areas. Our short-term care scores are based on the nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a wide range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. We found that this facility was subpar in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the staffing figures we looked at. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 3.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
