Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a strong facility overall, it also earned A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections are nearly flawless. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite insignificant. We were not able to track down deficiency data for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Among this nursing home's other accomplishments is its first-rate long-term care score. We gave them one of our best scores in that area, with a grade of A. Nursing homes that excel in this category tend to provide patients with closer supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. After assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 96.15385 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is more than most nursing homes. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

In addition, this facility also received favorable nursing grades this year. In fact, we awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B. Our nursing rating is based on several datapoints, most of which are associated with quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 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 last category we graded ended up being this facility's weakest area. However, even in its worst category we still awarded it a decent grade of C in our short-term care category. In the category of short-term care, we strive to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Unfortunately, we were not able to find information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
