Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a great overall score, this nursing home received an A+ inspection score. This is based on the facility's recent inspection reports. An A+ in this category is one of the best complements we can offer a facility. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate deficiency counts 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-plus

This facility also received an A+ long-term care grade, rendering it one of the few facilities to be awarded more than one A+ category grades. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it typically means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is far higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its strong resume, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with a grade of A. Our nursing rating looks at the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of licensure of those nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.5 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 place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Switching gears to our next category, this facility was awarded a strong short-term care score. We awarded it an A- in that area, giving this facility straight A's. With our short-term care assessment, we seek to craft a fair barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess the nursing home's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
