Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with a favorable overall score, we gave this nursing home an A+ for our inspection category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite insignificant. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. Nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility an A+. Our nursing grade analyzes many factors, many of which are tied to nursing hours. This nursing home provides 0.4 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 frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Turning the page to our next area, we awarded this nursing home a score of A for its long-term care grade. This is a superb rating. When nursing homes receive this type of grade in long-term care it is a good sign for patient care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 94.68085 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is higher than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

In the last category, we awarded this facility a grade of A+ for our short-term care score. This rounded out a very impressive report card. Our short-term care scores are likely most important for those requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
