Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to point out that this nursing home has received near flawless inspections recently. We gave them an A+ in this category. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

To complement its elite accomplishments in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a score of A for its short-term care score. In the area of short-term care, we strive to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also received a strong nursing score. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this area. Our nursing rating is primarily associated with a facility's nurse staffing. This facility provided 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 nursing home 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 generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In our final area, this facility also was given an excellent long-term care grade, with a grade of B+. This finished off a very impressive profile. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. After considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this facility submitted information about vaccinations. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
