Facility Inspections

Grade: A

With an overall grade this high, it should come as no surprise that this nursing home excelled in inspections, where it received an A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite insignificant. While this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This means CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient 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

This nursing home also was awarded a very impressive short-term care grade. In fact, this turned out to be this facility's second best category grade. In that category, this facility received a grade of A. Our short-term care ratings are arguably most meaningful for patients in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more skilled nursing. This means not just nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final metric we looked at in this category is the number of residents who returned home from the nursing home. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B+ for its nursing rating. This is a well above average score in this category. The nursing grade assesses many factors, but the paramount one is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as having a protocol of turning a resident more often.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

The fourth category we assessed was long-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a B+. This wrapped up a very impressive report card. Few nursing homes received a B+ or higher in each of our categories. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in this category tend to provide consistent around the clock care to make sure residents are well cared for. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 89.38907 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be a bit lower than we were hoping for but still a respectable figure. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, we were pleased to find nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
