Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of faring well overall, this facility earned an excellent inspection report. Consequently, we gave it one of our best scores in this category with an A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively minor. It does not look like we were able to find deficiency data for this facility. Without the information regarding deficiencies for this nursing home, it was a challenge to really grade the place in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Contributing to its strong profile, this nursing home also received a strong short-term care score, with a score of A. With our short-term care rating, we attempt to forge a sound measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at the nursing home's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

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+. There are a number of factors included in this category. Many of these datapoints reflect staffing levels. This facility provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Turning to the next category, this nursing home was given a very strong long-term care grade. While this is not as strong as a few of its other category grades, this is still one of the more favorable scores we offer. Nursing homes that excel in this category tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 94.07895 percent of its patients, which is more than the average nursing home. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
