Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to receiving a strong overall score, this nursing home excelled in inspections, which is based on its recent inspection reports. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. We weren't able to find information about this nursing home's deficiencies. We wish we had more data for this nursing home. Without having all of the deficiency related data, it is challenging to assess it in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its fine resume, this facility also was awarded a dominant short-term care grade, with a grade of A. Our short-term care ratings are likely most critical for individuals needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. This means not only nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The final measure we considered in this category is the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that 7.1 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. In determining a nursing home's nursing score, we assess the quantity of hours nurses are seeing patients as well as the skill levels of the nurses. 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 place performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' 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

Moving on to the last area, this nursing home also performed admirably in our long-term care category. We awarded it a B+ for that area. This finalized a very impressive report card. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. After considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. It doesn't appear that this facility submitted information on its vaccination levels. Clearly, this place 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 figure.
