Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a strong facility overall, it also earned A+ inspections in recent years. Its inspections are nearly perfect. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this nursing home's quality category scores came in the category of long-term care. We awarded them one of our stronger grades in that area, with a grade of B+. Facilities that excel in long-term care tend to provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents healthy. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B. In calculating our nursing ratings, we assess both staffing levels and the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home 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 generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The final category we looked at was short-term care. This facility received an above average short-term care grade this year, with a grade of B. This facility truly did not have any weak spots. Short-term care grades are generally used to assess a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To offer highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to offer higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Unfortunately, it does not look like this facility provided registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that 4.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
