Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home received an A+ inspection rating. This grade is based on its recent government inspections. An A+ in this category is one of the highest complements we can offer a facility. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area usually have few severe deficiencies. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Contributing to its top-shelf resume, this facility also received a strong long-term care score, with a grade of A. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is much higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also wanted to point out the fact that this nursing home was awarded an elite grade of A- in our short-term care area. Our short-term care grades are considered to be more critical for folks in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes not only nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. It does not look like this nursing home submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 6.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The final area we scored is nursing. This nursing home received an impressive nursing score this year, with a grade of C. Although this was not as elite as a few of its other scores, this remains an acceptable score for that category. Our nursing grade assesses quite a few subcategories, many of which are based on levels of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
