Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

To go along with its strong overall score, we awarded this facility an A- for our inspections rating. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its profile, this nursing home also earned a score of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is an above average score in this area. Our short-term care grades are arguably most important for folks in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not only nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. Finally, we looked at the number of patients that eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.5 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. The nursing score weighs a variety of subcategories. The most heavily weighted variable is the amount of time nurses spend with residents. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next category we rated was long-term care, in which this facility received a grade of B. This facility turned out to be strong in each area we assessed. For prospective patients in need of a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. After we finished assessing the volume of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 74.1573 percent of its patients against pneumonia. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, at least this nursing home was 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.
