Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of performing well overall, this facility also received a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it earned one of our best scores in that area with an A+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. This facility was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor dings aren't necessarily something to panic about.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also was dominant in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a score of A. Very few nursing homes received a better grade in this area. Our short-term care grade is commonly used to grade a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to have highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to have better levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+.

This nursing home performed very well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The final category we rated is long-term care. In this area, we gave this facility a strong grade of B. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 99.0991 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients healthy. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
