Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its strong overall score, we awarded this facility a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 3 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility is also above average in the category of long-term care, where it was awarded a score of B+. It performed more favorably than most nursing homes in this category. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 93.60223 percent of its patients, which is a bit less than we anticipated. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The third category we graded was short-term care. This nursing home was given a favorable short-term care grade, with a B in this category. Our short-term care ratings are based on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a vast spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that 5.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The next area we scored is nursing, turned out to be this facility's least impressive category. We awarded this nursing home a D in this area. This really is one of the few weak links in a very solid profile. There are a number of subcategories within this category. Most of the factors are tied to nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
