Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to being a first rate nursing home overall, it also performed well in the area of inspections, where it earned an A. Not many facilities performed better in this category. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this category usually have very few severe deficiencies. This facility received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to resident health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Among its many impressive grades, this facility received an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A in that category. Nursing scores are mostly tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this nursing home 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 state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of moving residents more frequently.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its fine assessment, this nursing home also was given a strong long-term care score, with a grade of A-. If you are looking for anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care ratings. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 87.63797 percent of its patients. This is somewhat lower than we expected. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, we were pleased to find place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next category we analyzed was short-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a favorable grade of B. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who ultimately returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
