Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of receiving a quality overall score, this nursing home also earned excellent government inspections recently. We awarded it one of our best grades in that category, with an A. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This facility also was strong in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of A. Not many nursing homes fared better in this category. Facilities that receive this type of score in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are well cared for. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 98.9011 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Our nursing score considers numerous factors. The most important factor is the amount of time nurses spent with patients. This particular nursing home provided 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 facility 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 last area we scored was short-term care. In this category, we awarded this nursing home an acceptable grade of B-. This actually turned out to be this nursing home's weakest area. Short-term care ratings are important for people in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires additional highly-skilled nursing. This includes a vast range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that just 4.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
