In addition to receiving an elite overall score, this facility also received an A+ inspection rating. This is based on its recent inspection reports. An A+ in this area is one of the best complements we can pay to a facility. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse.

Short-term care ratings are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services.

This nursing home averages 3.7 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 facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Long-term care grades in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services.
