Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

On top of being a quality nursing home overall, this place excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A-. Few facilities performed better in that area. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This place was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

This nursing home vaccinated 98.305084 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia can be a life threatening condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a facility does not take any chances. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next area we scored is short-term care. This facility was awarded a C in this category.

This nursing home performed better in this statistic. We found that it fared better than most facilities in this area with 49.7 percent of its residents returning home.
