Facility Inspections

Grade: A+

To pair with its favorable overall score, we gave this nursing home an A+ for our inspections rating. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this category usually have few severe deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also was given a impressive long-term care grade. In fact, this is this nursing home's second strongest category score. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of A. Facilities that excel in this category typically are well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is often a dangerous health condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home does not leave its residents vulnerable. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also received a strong nursing score. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B in this area. Our nursing score analyzes the facility's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of licensure of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with residents. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we analyzed proved to be this nursing home's poorest category. Nevertheless, even in its weakest link we still gave it a decent grade of B- in short-term care. In the category of short-term care, we strive to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. It does not look like this facility provided registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The final metric we considered in this area is the number of residents who returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
