Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a great overall rating, this facility received an A+ inspection score. This score is based on the facility's recent inspection reports. An A+ in this area is one of the highest complements we can pay to a facility. Inspection scores weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this category typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. This facility received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home also received an A+ for its nursing grade. Nursing grades are mostly tied to a nursing home's nurse staffing. 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 facility 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 frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also received a impressive long-term care score. In fact, this ended up being this nursing home's third strongest category score. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of A. Facilities that receive this type of grade in long-term care tend to provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are well cared for. After considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 95.66929 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

The final area we graded was short-term care, where this facility was awarded a grade of B+. This topped off a very impressive profile. Few facilities earned a B+ or better in all four categories. In our short-term care assessment, we seek to forge a meaningful measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze the nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage 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.
