Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a great nursing home overall, it also earned A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections were virtually flawless. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so well is that it received a dominant long-term care grade. In fact, long-term care is its second most impressive category grade. In that area, we gave this nursing home a score of A-. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in long-term care it is a good sign for resident care and indicates that the facility is well-staffed with nurses and aids. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 99.69697 percent of its patients. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients out of the hospital. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Turning to another strength for this facility, we gave them one of our stronger scores in our short-term care category as well, with a B. Our short-term care grades are considered to be most critical for folks requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this nursing home provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 5.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The next category we assessed is nursing. In that area, we gave this nursing home a decent grade of C. This actually proved to be this nursing home's worst category. Our nursing score is mostly tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often a reliable indicator that a place has quality controls in place.
