Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to performing well overall, this facility also earned nearly flawless government inspections. As a result, it earned one of our best scores in that category with an A+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are relatively minor. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that we were able to find deficiency data for this facility. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its impressive performance in other areas, we gave this nursing home a grade of A- for its long-term care score. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. This facility clearly fared well enough in these metrics to earn an encouraging grade in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Turning to our next area, this facility also received a score of B for its short-term care rating. This is an above average score in this category. With our short-term care category, we seek to forge a valuable measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze a nursing home's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. This place provides more services with physical therapists and registered nurses than most facilities we looked at. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

The next category we scored was nursing. This nursing home was given a strong nursing grade this year, with a B. While this wasn't as good as a few of its other category grades, this remains one of the more impressive grades for this category. In determining our nursing scores, we assess both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of the nurses. This nursing home provided 4.5 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This was one of the better totals we found. In addition, we found that a significant percentage of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. On top of offering impressive levels of nursing care, this facility also excelled in the quality measures we looked at. It performed as well as any facility in the nation in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
