Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being an elite nursing home overall, this facility also excelled in our inspections category, where it received an A+. Few places performed as well in this category. Inspection grades weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category typically have few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Additionally, this facility also was awarded favorable short-term care grades in our assessment. Indeed, we awarded it one of our more favorable grades in that area, with a score of B+. With our short-term care score, we attempt to forge a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess the facility's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 5.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

In addition, this facility also received favorable nursing grades this year. In fact, we awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B. We scrutinized the levels of nurses employed by the facility, in addition to the quantity of hours the nurses were with patients, in determining our grade in this area. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Moving on to the final area, this facility was awarded a respectable long-term care grade. Even though this was not nearly as dominant as a few of its other scores, this is truly nothing to be ashamed of. With our long-term care grade, we analyze the volume of care offered by a facility, as well as a handful of quality measures. After looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to find that this facility vaccinated 98.15668 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
