Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This facility received a strong overall grade as described above, but we especially would like to emphasize its excellent inspections in recent years. We gave it an A- in this category. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this category typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. A few minor dings aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. This turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B+. Our nursing rating is primarily based on a facility's nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Additionally, this facility also was given favorable long-term care scores in our assessment. In fact, we awarded it one of our more favorable scores in that category, with a score of B. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 96.20596 percent of its residents. This is a reliable method to avoid unnecessary hospitalizations for the aged 65 and up population. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The last area we scored was short-term care, where we gave it a strong grade of B. This nursing home really doesn't have any weak areas. Short-term care ratings are meaningful for patients seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This includes a vast range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
