Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of faring well overall, this facility also earned a nearly flawless inspection report. Consequently, it received one of our best scores in that area with a grade of A+. Arguably the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also performed well in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of A. Not many nursing homes performed better in this area. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. After looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 95.60811 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents out of the hospital. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Among its many impressive grades, this facility received an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A- in that category. The nursing rating is based on a number of factors. The most heavily weighted one is the amount of time nurses spend with residents. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of turning residents even once per day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next category we scored is this facility's poorest category. However, even its worst category would be a highlight for many facilities. We awarded it an above average grade of B for our short-term care category. Our short-term care ratings are considered to be most critical for those in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This means not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. We weren't able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.1 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
