Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of faring well overall, this facility also earned nearly flawless government inspections. Therefore, it received one of our best grades in that category with an A+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite insignificant. It doesn't look like we have information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition, this nursing home was given superb marks in the area of long-term care. For this reason, it was given one of our most impressive scores in that category with a grade of A+. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in this category it is a good sign for patient care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. Once we concluded our assessment of the quantity of nursing care, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia can be a deadly condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a facility doesn't take any chances. 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 only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility is also strong in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B+. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. The nursing score considers a number of factors. The most heavily weighted one is the amount of time nurses spend with patients. This nursing home provides 0 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 avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In our final area, we awarded this nursing home a A+ for our short-term care score. This rounded out a very favorable report card. Our short-term care grades are vital for patients looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional skilled nursing. This includes a wide spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this nursing home provided registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
