Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This nursing home received a quality overall score as described above, but we especially would like to emphasize its nearly flawless inspections in recent years. We gave them an A in this area. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home truly excelled in the category of long-term care, where it received a grade of A-. Few facilities performed better in this category. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in long-term care it is usually a good sign for resident care and suggests that the facility is well-staffed with nurses aids. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 97.75281 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is significantly higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

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. The nursing grade consists of quite a few subcategories, most of which are tied to nursing hours. This nursing home provides 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 facility 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: C

The next category we scored was short-term care, in which this nursing home was awarded a C. This is this facility's least impressive category. This is nevertheless not the end of the world. Our short-term care grades are crucial for patients needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more skilled nursing. This means a vast spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. We were not able to locate information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 2.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.
