Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a strong overall rating, this facility received an A+ inspection rating. This score is based on its recent inspection reports. An A+ in this category is one of the highest complements we can pay to a nursing home. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. It doesn't appear that we have 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

Among this nursing home's other accomplishments is its top-shelf long-term care grade. We gave them one of our more impressive scores in that category, with a score of A. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a great way to minimize unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the aged 65 and up population. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. While this wasn't quite as good as some of its other category grades, this isn't a bad score either. There are quite a few factors included in this category. Many of the subcategories relate to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, nursing scores also consider quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this place actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses to assist its residents.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we analyzed is short-term care. We awarded this facility an acceptable grade in that category, with a B-. Even though this wasn't as favorable as a few of this nursing home's other grades, it is nevertheless nothing to be ashamed of. Short-term care ratings are based on the nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a wide scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. It doesn't look like this nursing home submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The last item we considered in this area is the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
