Facility Inspections

Grade: A

One of the reasons this turned out to be a strong facility is that it received an impressive inspection rating. Inspections turned out to be its best category. In that category, we gave it a grade of A. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Among this facility's other strengths is its elite nursing grade. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of A-. Nursing ratings are mostly tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Additionally, this nursing home also was given favorable short-term care scores in our assessment. Indeed, we awarded it one of our stronger grades in that area, with a grade of B+. Our short-term care grades are presumably most meaningful for residents in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically mandates more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we graded is long-term care, where this facility was awarded a B-. Although this proved to be its worst category score, this is nevertheless nothing to be ashamed of. For prospective patients seeking a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility vaccinated 99.14163 percent of its patients, which is an above average datapoint. This place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
