Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

One of the reasons this place is a strong facility is that it received a very impressive inspection score. In fact, inspections turned out to be its best category grade. In that category, we awarded this facility an A-. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

An additional quality feature for this nursing home is that it was awarded a very positive short-term care grade. In fact, this proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this facility a B+. Our short-term care grades are based on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a broad spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

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. Our nursing score is based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of training of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place 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 prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final category we assessed was long-term care. We awarded it a grade of B- in that area. This is not a bad grade in this category. In the category of long-term care, we analyze the amount of care offered by a facility, rather than more medically-intensive services. After looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. We were pleased to find that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. This facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
