Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

On top of earning a strong overall rating, this facility fared even better in the area of inspections which is based on the facility's recent inspections. In fact, we gave it an A- for that category, which is one of our best grades. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this area tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to resident safety or health. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Building on its impressive resume, this nursing home also excelled in the category of nursing. We awarded it an B+ for that category.

This facility provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Turning to an additional strength for this nursing home, we gave them one of our stronger grades in our short-term care category as well, with a B. Our short-term care scores are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final item we assessed in this area is the number of patients who returned home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last area we assessed was long-term care. We gave it a C in this area. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this area. In determining our long-term care scores, we analyze the personal care offered to the facility's patients. After considering the amount of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home vaccinated only 64.72868 percent of its residents against pneumonia. On a more positive note, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
