Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To pair with its favorable overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. It does not look like we were able to find deficiency counts for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its high-end assessment, this facility also was awarded an excellent long-term care grade, with a score of A. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. One of the statistics we considered after this facility's quality nursing hours is vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccines are a great way to avoid unnecessary hospitalizations for seniors. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Moving on our next category, this facility was given a strong short-term care score. In fact, it received a score of A in this category. In the area of short-term care, we try to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. This facility provided more physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most nursing homes. This is what we like to find when assessing a nursing home in this category. The final metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that this facility was above average in this area with 55.4 percent of its residents returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

The final area we graded is nursing, where this facility was given an A. This topped off a very favorable profile. Not many facilities earned an A- or better in all four categories. The nursing score analyzes quite a few data points, many of which are based on levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides an incredible 4.1 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. Out of that total, many of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the more highly trained levels of nurses. In addition to providing high levels of care, this place was also above average in several of the major quality measures we looked at in this category. It performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
