Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a great overall grade, this facility also received A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections were virtually flawless. Our inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this area usually have few of these severe deficiencies. This facility was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies an imminent threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home is also strong in the area of long-term care, where it was given a score of B+. It outpaced most nursing homes in this area. Facilities that excel in this category typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients out of the hospital. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we looked at is short-term care, where this facility was given a B-. While this wound up being its poorest category score, this is still nothing to be ashamed of.

We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last item we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure was below average.
