Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a great overall grade, this facility also received A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections were virtually flawless. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This facility was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This indicates that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to create an imminent threat to patient health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home was awarded strong grades in the category of short-term care as well. Consequently, it received one of our most elite scores in that category with a area of A-. Short-term care scores are crucial for individuals needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires additional skilled nursing. This means a vast scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents that returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Another strong feature for this facility is that it received an impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B. The nursing category includes quite a few datapoints, many of which are based on levels of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final category we looked at is long-term care. We gave this nursing home a decent score in this category, with a B-. While this isn't as strong as many of its other grades, it is nevertheless not a major area of concern. If you are looking for services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 95.5665 percent of its residents, which is more than the vast majority of nursing homes. This place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
