Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to performing well overall, this nursing home received a nearly flawless inspection report. Therefore, it received one of our best grades in that category with an A+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively insignificant. This facility received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to patient health or safety. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this nursing home's quality category scores came in the category of short-term care. We awarded them one of our higher grades in that area, with a score of B+. Our short-term care scores are probably most critical for those in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically mandates more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B+. Nursing scores are mostly tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This facility 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 nursing home performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

The final category we rated was long-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a grade of B+. This finished off a very impressive profile. Only a select few facilities earned a B+ or higher in every category. Nursing homes that excel in this category typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 99.18533 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is too frequently a life threatening condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a facility doesn't take any chances. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
