Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of faring well overall, this facility earned nearly flawless government inspections. Therefore, it received one of our best grades in that category with an A+. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. A few relatively minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. Nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this facility an A. Nursing scores are based in large part on quantity of nursing care available. 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 facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

The third area we analyzed was short-term care. We gave them one of our more impressive scores in that category, with a grade of A-. In our short-term care score, we strive to create a fair barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess the nursing home's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients that were able to return home from the facility. We found that 5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next category we assessed was long-term care, which proved to be this facility's worst category. We gave this facility a grade of D in this area. However, you shouldn't judge this facility solely on a single weak area, as it received several high-end scores in other categories. For patients looking for a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. On top of considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 97.75785 percent of its patients, which is better than the majority of nursing homes. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
