Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home outperformed its overall grade in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in that category with a grade of A+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively insignificant. Unfortunately, it does not appear that we have information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Additionally, we also wanted to note that this nursing home was given favorable long-term care marks this year. We awarded them one of our more favorable grades in this category, with a B+. This proved to be the facility's second highest grade. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 95.14563 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home was given its third best category score in the category of short-term care. We gave this nursing home a C in this category, which is a respectable grade. In determining our short-term care scores, we size up the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. This area is generally a fair assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The next category we rated is nursing. We gave this nursing home a C in this category. Our nursing rating assesses the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of skill of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with patients. This place averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, which is well below average. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this place performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place.
