Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to point out that this facility earned near flawless inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to create an imminent risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of A. In determining our nursing ratings, we weigh both staffing levels and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its fine resume, this nursing home also was awarded a dominant long-term care grade, with a score of A. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 99.514565 percent of its patients. This is a great way to avoid negative health outcomes for the senior population. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

In the final area, this nursing home also was awarded an excellent short-term care grade, with a grade of A-. This topped off an elusive straight A report card. Short-term care grades are often used to gauge a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To offer highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to feature better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
