Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this facility also earned an A+ inspection grade. This is based on its recent government inspections. An A+ in this category is one of the best complements we can pay to a nursing home. Inspection ratings are tied to pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that score well in this area have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This place received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an immediate 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: A-minus

To complement its high-end achievements in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a score of A- for its long-term care grade. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care tend to provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 94.419975 percent of its residents, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is often a dangerous illness for nursing home residents so we like it when a nursing home does not leave this to chance. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to the third category, this facility also received a grade of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is an above average score in this category. In the category of short-term care, we strive to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. It doesn't appear that this nursing home provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The final measure we considered in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 5.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Moving on to the next category, this facility was given a strong nursing grade. While this wasn't as impressive as many of its other scores, this is still one of the more favorable scores we offer. Nursing ratings are based in large part on quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
