Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with a favorable overall grade, we gave this place an A+ for our inspection category. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

An additional reason we assessed this facility so favorably is that it was awarded an A+ long-term care score. This is just about as strong as it gets in this area. Facilities that receive this type of grade in long-term care tend to provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are kept in good health. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 98.55072 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a proven method to avoid negative health outcomes for the aged 65 and up population. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Building on its remarkable resume, this facility also was awarded a superb short-term care score, with a score of A. Our short-term care ratings are meaningful for individuals requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing. This means a vast spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last measure we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 6.6 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

In the last category we rated, this facility received a very favorable grade of A- in our nursing category. With this score, the nursing home completed a straight A profile. There are numerous subcategories included in this grade. Many of these criteria are tied to staffing levels. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
