Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this place ended up being a quality nursing home is it earned an A+ inspection grade. This is just about as good as it gets in this critical category. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This place was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies an imminent risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home also received an A+ nursing grade, making it one of the few nursing homes to receive multiple A+ category grades. Nursing grades are largely based on the nursing home's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Turning our next category, this facility received an excellent long-term care score. In fact, we awarded it a score of A in that category. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in this category it is a good sign for patient care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. After we finished looking at the amount of nursing care, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia can be a life or death health condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a facility doesn't leave this to chance. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In the last category, we awarded this facility a grade of A+ for our short-term care grade. This finished off a very impressive report card. Short-term care grades are based on a facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a vast range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
