Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To pair with its strong overall score, we awarded this place an A+ for our inspection category. Arguably the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better grades in this area typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Unfortunately, we were not able to find deficiency data for this facility. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its high-end performance in other areas, we gave this nursing home a score of A- for our long-term care rating. Facilities that excel in long-term care typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 97.45223 percent of its patients, which is far higher than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility is also strong in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B+. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. Our nursing rating looks at the facility's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of skill of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home 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 generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final category we rated was short-term care. We awarded this nursing home an acceptable grade in this area, with a B-. Although this was not as high as a few of its other scores, it is still a middle of the pack score. In calculating our short-term care scores, we look at a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. This grade is considered to be a meaningful assessment of a nursing home's rehabilitation. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
