Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home 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 factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B+. Our nursing grade is largely based on a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms 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: B-plus

This facility received a favorable long-term care grade as well. We gave it one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B+. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. After considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 99.4898 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last category we assessed ended up being this facility's weakest category. However, even in its weakest link we still awarded it a respectable grade of B- in our short-term care category. Short-term care grades are commonly employed to assess a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to provide good rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to have better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. We weren't able to locate registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 3.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
