Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a strong nursing home overall, this place really excelled in our inspections category, where it earned an A+. Not many nursing homes performed better in this area. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so favorably is that it was awarded a strong short-term care score. In fact, short-term care is its second most impressive category score. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A. Our short-term care scores are based in part on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a broad spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final item we assessed in this area is the number of patients who returned home from the facility. We found that 6.5 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-minus

Turning to the category of nursing care, this facility didn't perform quite as well in this area as some of the categories discussed above. Nevertheless, a grade of B- in this category is by no means a bad score. We assessed the qualifications of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the quantity of hours the nurses spent with patients, in calculating our grade in this category. This facility provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it scored well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This nursing home's least impressive area was long-term care, which is the last category we looked at. It received an F for this category. Despite some favorable scores in other areas, this score is nevertheless a bit alarming so we wanted to point it out. For residents seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is an above average statistic. Surprisingly, this facility also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
