Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a great overall rating, this nursing home received an A+ inspection grade. This score is based on the facility's recent inspection reports. An A+ in this category is one of the highest complements we can pay to a nursing home. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also awarded this facility a grade of A+ for its long-term care grade. Facilities that receive this type of score in long-term care tend to provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are kept in good health. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 94.047615 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly can be a deadly health condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a facility doesn't take any chances. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 1.34 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Nursing scores are tied to quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home provided 3.9 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is an impressive statistic which typically correlates with higher quality care. Finally, this nursing home also excelled in several quality-based metrics we assessed. With less than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, this place performed as well as any facility the country in this category. This is often an indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Many pressure ulcers can be avoided by offering better nursing care and having a policy of moving patients more often.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last area we graded was short-term care. This facility received a favorable short-term care rating this year, with a grade of C. Although this was not as dominant as some of its other category grades, this is still a decent grade for that category. Our short-term care grade is generally used to gauge a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to provide high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide higher levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. One of this nursing home's strength is that it offers more hours of physical therapy per week to its residents. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 37 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this is below average.
