Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a strong nursing home overall, it also received A+ government inspections recently. Its inspections are virtually perfect. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies an immediate threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This facility also was strong in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a score of A. Few nursing homes fared better in this area. If you are looking for anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care grades. After we finished looking at the quantity of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 65.08875 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A in our nursing category. The nursing category assesses a handful of components, most of which are associated with quantities of nurse staffing. This facility provided 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 nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

The fourth area we assessed was short-term care, where this nursing home was given a grade of A-. This finished off a very impressive report card. Not many facilities earned an A- or higher in in each area we assessed. In our short-term care rating, we strive to create a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at a facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who eventually returned 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.
