Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its favorable overall score, we gave this facility an A+ for our inspection category. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This place received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies an immediate risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home was awarded an impressive long-term care score as well. We awarded it one of our better grades in that category with a score of B. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 96.62162 percent of its residents. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients out of the hospital. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home is also strong in the area of short-term care, where it was given a grade of B. It performed better than most facilities in this category. Our short-term care scores are thought to be more important for folks in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally requires additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. We weren't able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The final measure we considered in this category is the number of patients that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that 5.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

The final category we graded was nursing, in which this facility was given a grade of B. This facility did not turn out to have any real weak links. There are several subcategories included in this category. Most of these factors are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
