Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of receiving an elite overall grade, this facility also received an A+ inspection rating. This score is based on the facility's recent government inspections. An A+ in this area is one of the highest complements we can pay to a facility. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies to be an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

On the list of its many impressive scores, this nursing home was awarded an excellent long-term care grade. In fact, it received a score of A- in this category. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 95.02487 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B+ for its nursing rating. This is a well above average score in this category. Our nursing score looks at the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of training of the nurses and the amount of time spent with patients. This nursing home averages 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 place 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 typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Moving on to the fourth category, this facility was awarded a very strong short-term care rating. We awarded it a grade of B+ in that area, completing one of our better report cards. Short-term care scores are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a wide scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
