Grade: A-plus

Our inspection ratings are based on datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that receive favorable grades in this category typically have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This nursing home was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to be an immediate threat to resident safety or health. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Adding to this nursing home's list of strengths, it also received an excellent nursing grade. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this category. Our nursing grade is mostly associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided 3.9 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is an impressive figure which typically leads to quality care. Lastly, this facility also excelled in several of the quality-based metrics we looked at. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the country in this category.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility also was given an impressive long-term care score. Indeed, we gave it an above average grade of B in this area. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. This nursing home's vaccination statistics weren't as favorable a few of its other statistics in this area, such as its nursing hours data. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 59.63303 percent of its patients. We would like to see some improvement herein this statistic in the future. Finally, we looked at the facility's number of hospitalizations. We found that this nursing home had 2.11 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final area we analyzed is short-term care, in which this nursing home was given a B-. Although this proved to be its worst category score, this is nevertheless not a bad grade. With our short-term care category, we strive to craft a valuable barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess the facility's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, we found that this nursing home provided respectable levels of physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident. The last measure we considered in this category is the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from the nursing home. This place fared respectably with 46.4 percent of its residents returning home.
