Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

The primary reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it earned an elite inspection grade. Its inspection score was far better than its overall grade. In the inspections category, we gave it an A-. Inspection grades are tied to several pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this category tend to have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This place was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies an imminent risk to patient safety or health. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

We also awarded this facility a favorable grade in nursing. This facility earned a grade of B+ in this category, which is one of our better grades. Our nursing rating consists of quite a few components, most of which are based on quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next highest category we awarded this nursing home in any area came in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-. Our short-term care scores are likely most important for folks requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually requires more skilled nursing services. This means not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. We were not able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final measure we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that just 4.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. This figure was below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Switching gears to our last category, this facility was awarded an acceptable long-term care score of C. Our long-term care ratings are more critical for people needing more traditional services associated with activities of daily living. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to learn that this facility vaccinated 96.92308 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
