Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To pair with its favorable overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for inspections. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. It does not appear that we were able to find deficiency data for this nursing home. Without deficiency related data for this facility, it ended up being difficult to evaluate the place in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

This first-rate facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A+. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Our nursing rating looks at the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of licensure of those nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. This particular nursing home provided 4.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which was among the highest totals we found. Lastly, this nursing home was also above average in each of the major quality measures we looked at in this category. It performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility is also above average in the category of short-term care, where it was given a score of B+. It performed better than most nursing homes in this category. With our short-term care rating, we strive to craft a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze a facility's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. One of this nursing home's strength is that it offers more hours of care from registered nurses to its residents. The final measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. This place was above average in this area with 53.1 percent of its patients returning home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next category we looked at was long-term care, in which this facility was given a B. While this wound up being its worst category grade, this is nevertheless a good rating. For prospective residents seeking a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. One of the criteria we considered on top of nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 91.37931 percent of its patients. Fortunately, this facility was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 1.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a much better hospitalization rate than most nursing homes.
