Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being an elite nursing home overall, this nursing home performed well in the area of inspections, where it earned an A+. Few places performed as well in this category. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to resident safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also received a fine short-term care score. This actually ended up being its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of A-. Our short-term care grade is generally employed to assess a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To offer highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. It doesn't look like this nursing home submitted information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The last metric we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 6.3 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. Our nursing grade is based on a handful of components, many of which are based on levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.5 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 nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we rated is long-term care, where this facility received a B-. This is this facility's worst category. This is still not a poor grade. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We were a bit alarmed this facility gave the vaccine to a relatively low 90.25641 percent of its residents. Nevertheless, this facility keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
