Facility Inspections

Grade: A+

To go along with its favorable overall score, we gave this facility an A+ for our inspections rating. Our inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this area tend to have few 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: A-plus

This nursing home also received an A+ for its long-term care score. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccinations. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 61.151077 percent of its residents. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. We assessed the licensure of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the number of hours those nurses were with patients, in determining our score in this area. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next category we graded is short-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a B. Believe it or not, this is this facility's weakest category. A facility is doing something right when it's lowest score still is superior to most other facilities. With our short-term care score, we strive to forge a sound measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess the facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last item we considered in this category is the number of patients that returned home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
