Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a strong facility overall, it also earned A+ inspections in recent years. Its inspections are virtually perfect. Our inspection scores account for several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this category usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

An additional quality feature for this nursing home is that it received a very positive long-term care score. Indeed, this turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B+. For patients in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 80.58253 percent of its residents, which is somewhat lower than we were hoping for. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B+ for its nursing rating. This is a well above average score in this category. Nursing scores are based largely on levels of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The last category we assessed was short-term care. This nursing home received a favorable nursing rating in our assessment, with a grade of B. Even though this was not quite as impressive as some of its other grades, this is still one of the more favorable grades in that area. Our short-term care ratings are presumably more critical for folks requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not just nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
