Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Our inspection grades weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this area typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Among this facility's other accomplishments is its high-end short-term care grade. We gave them one of our more impressive grades in that area, with a grade of A-. Our short-term care scores are likely more critical for those needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.3 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility really excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. There are a host of factors within this grade. Many of the factors relate to the quantity and quality 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 place performed very well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last category we scored is long-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a solid grade of B-. This proved to be this facility's least impressive area. If you are looking for services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care ratings. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 92.17391 percent of its residents. This is a bit below what we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable figure. On a more positive note, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
