Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a strong facility overall, it also received A+ government inspections recently. Its inspections were nearly perfect. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies an imminent risk to resident health or safety. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home is also strong in the area of long-term care, where it received a score of B+. It outpaced most facilities in this category. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in long-term care typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure residents are well cared for. One of the factors we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccinations. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 96.07843 percent of its residents. This is a reliable method to minimize unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the aged 65 and up population. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B+ for its nursing rating. This is a well above average score in this category. There are numerous factors included in this grade. Most of the criteria reflect nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The final area we looked at is short-term care. In this area, we awarded this facility an above average grade of B. In our short-term care score, we attempt to create a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess the facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.
