Facility Inspections

Grade: A+

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Inspection scores weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this area generally have very few severe deficiencies. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we were able to find information on deficiency's for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its high-end resume, this nursing home also received a strong long-term care score, with a score of A-. Facilities that excel in long-term care typically provide residents with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. On top of looking at the impressive quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff at this facility, we also were happy with the facility's vaccination record. By way of example, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is what we like to see. This combination proved to be successful as this facility keeps its residents out of the hospital. Although it had 3.69 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted statistic was better than most nursing homes due to it having more complicated patients.

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. The nursing grade weighs many datapoints, but the paramount consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided 4.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily, which was among the better figures we found. Finally, we also looked at nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these metrics as reliable indicators of the caliber of nursing care offered, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The final category we scored is this nursing home's weakest category. Nevertheless, even its weakest link would likely be a strength for most facilities. In fact, we gave it a favorable grade of B in our short-term care category. Short-term care scores are meaningful for individuals in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. When we assessed this facility's nursing hours, we found it offered more care from registered nurses than most nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who returned home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
