Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to being a strong facility overall, this place really excelled in our inspections category, where it earned an A. Not many nursing homes performed better in this area. Inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this category tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. In fact, nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A-. Our nursing grade is primarily based on a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place 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 often be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility also received a favorable short-term care grade. Indeed, we gave it an above average grade of B in this area. Our short-term care grades are presumably most meaningful for individuals requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this nursing home submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last datapoint we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next area we assessed was long-term care, where this nursing home received a grade of C. While this wound up being its poorest category score, this is nevertheless a middle of the pack score. Our long-term care scores are more critical for residents needing more conventional services related to personal care. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 90.87524 percent of its residents. This is many points below average. Nevertheless, this facility was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
