To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find deficiency counts for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also was given a strong long-term care score. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this area. Facilities that receive this type of score in long-term care typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure residents are well cared for. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 97.82609 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is too frequently a deadly ailment for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't take any chances. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to our third area, this facility also received a grade of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is a well above average grade in this area. In our short-term care category, we endeavor to create a sound gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess the facility's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we analyzed was nursing. We gave this facility a solid grade in that category, with a B-. While this was not as high as several of its other grades, it is nevertheless nothing to be ashamed of. Our nursing rating includes a handful of factors, but the primary consideration is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it scored well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
