Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of receiving an elite overall rating, this nursing home received an A+ inspection grade. This score is based on its recent government inspections. An A+ in this category is one of the best complements we can pay to a facility. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to be an immediate threat to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not something to panic about.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home was given strong grades in the category of short-term care as well. In fact, it received one of our strongest grades in that category with a score of A-. Our short-term care grades are thought to be most critical for those in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the number of patients who ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also received a strong nursing score. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B in this area. Our nursing rating includes a number of factors. The most important factor is the amount of time nurses spend with residents. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place 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 often be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final area we scored is long-term care, which ended up being this facility's weakest category. We awarded this facility a grade of D in this category. However, we would not assess this nursing home solely on one weak area, since it earned some excellent scores in other categories. In a long-term care setting, the primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of looking at the amount 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 96.48094 percent of its patients, which is better than most nursing homes. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
