Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To pair with its favorable overall grade, we gave this place an A+ for our inspection category. Inspection grades account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this category typically have few severe deficiencies. This place was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to be an immediate threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility is also strong in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B+. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. We assessed the licensure of nurses employed by the nursing home, in addition to the number of hours the nurses were with residents, in calculating our rating in this category. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of moving patients even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to the next category, this nursing home also earned a score of B+ for its long-term care rating. This is an above average grade in this category. For prospective residents looking for a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. One of the criteria we considered on top of nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this nursing home submitted information on its vaccination levels. Clearly, this nursing home 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 an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The last category we analyzed was short-term care. We gave this facility one of our higher grades in this area, with a B. Even though this was not as favorable as many of this nursing home's other scores, it is still a fine grade. In our short-term care assessment, we attempt to craft a fair gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at the facility's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
