Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. In that category, we awarded this nursing home an B+. Our nursing score consists of a handful of components, most of which are based on levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 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 often be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to an additional strength for this facility, we gave them one of our stronger grades in our short-term care category as well, with a B+. In our short-term care category, we attempt to craft a valuable barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at a nursing home's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we assessed is long-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a B-. While this turned out to be its weakest category score, this is nevertheless not a bad grade. Our long-term care ratings are more critical for people requiring more conventional assistance associated with personal care. One of the factors we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Frankly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 90 percent of its patients. Nevertheless, this place excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
