Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this nursing home has received near flawless government inspections recently. We gave them an A+ in this area. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also awarded this facility a grade of A+ for its short-term care grade. In our short-term care assessment, we attempt to craft a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at the facility's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 5.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

The next area we looked at was long-term care. Adding to its top-shelf profile, this facility also performed well in this area. In fact, we awarded it a of A- for the area. Facilities that do well in this category tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 98 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

In the last category, this facility also was given an impressive nursing rating, with an A-. This wrapped up an elite report card. The nursing score consists of several subcategories, however, the paramount consideration is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provides 0.6 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 nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
