Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a great facility overall, it also earned A+ inspections in recent years. Its inspections were nearly flawless. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. It doesn't appear that we have deficiency data for this facility. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This facility also was awarded a fine short-term care score. In fact, this ended up being its second most impressive category grade. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of A. Short-term care scores are important for patients in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a vast scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.9 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also received a strong nursing score. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this area. We assessed the qualifications of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the quantity of hours the nurses were with patients, in computing our rating in this category. This facility provided 0 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 nursing home the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as having a policy of moving a patient more often.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

The last category we rated was long-term care, where this facility was given a B+. This wrapped up a first-rate profile. Only a select few facilities received a B+ or higher in every single category. For prospective residents seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. It does not appear that this facility submitted data regarding vaccinations. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
