Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To pair with a favorable overall grade, we gave this facility an A+ for our inspections rating. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. In fact, nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of A. There are a number of factors within this grade. Many of these subcategories are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Turning the page to our third area, this nursing home was given an excellent long-term care score. In fact, it received a grade of A- in that category. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 92.98246 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is a bit less than we were hoping for but still a respectable figure. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Moving on to the final category, this nursing home also excelled in our short-term care category. In fact, we gave it a grade of A- for this area. This wrapped up a straight A report card. Short-term care scores are meaningful for individuals seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This includes a vast scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final measure we looked at in this area is the number of residents that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
