Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a great facility overall, it also received A+ health inspections recently. Its inspections were nearly flawless. Inspection grades account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this area generally have few of these severe deficiencies. It doesn't look like we were able to find deficiency counts for this nursing home. We wish we had more information about this facility. Without having access to information regarding deficiencies, it was challenging to really evaluate it in the area of inspections.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Contributing to its profile, this nursing home also received a score of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is a well above average score in this category. In computing these short-term care grades, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to formulate a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that 6.3 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: B

This facility is also above average in the category of long-term care, where it was awarded a score of B. It performed better than most facilities in this area. Nursing homes that excel in this category tend to provide residents with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is significantly higher than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

The final category we rated is nursing, in which we awarded it a strong grade of B. This facility really doesn't have any weak areas. The nursing grade includes quite a few data points, many of which are associated with levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
