Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with a favorable overall grade, we gave this place a grade of A+ for our inspection category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively insignificant. 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: A-plus

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. In fact, nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this nursing home an A+. Nursing ratings are primarily tied to a nursing home's 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 nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place 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: A

Turning our next area, this nursing home was awarded first-rate short-term care score. In fact, we awarded it a score of A in that area. Our short-term care ratings are likely most meaningful for patients requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 5.7 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In our last category, we awarded this facility an A+ for our long-term care score. This wrapped up a very favorable profile. When facilities receive this type of grade in long-term care it is a good sign for patient care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccinations. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 99.191376 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a proven method to minimize unnecessary deaths for the senior population. Clearly, this place 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 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
