Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to earning a strong overall rating, this facility performed well in our inspections category, which is based on the facility's recent inspection reports. We gave it a grade of A in that category. Our inspection scores weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this category generally have very few of these severe deficiencies. 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. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A in our nursing category. Our nursing rating is largely associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.5 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 many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

The third area we analyzed is short-term care. Adding to its top-shelf profile, this facility also performed well in this area. In fact, it received a of A- in the area. Our short-term care scores are crucial for people in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that 5.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In the final category we scored, this facility was given a very strong grade of B+ in our long-term care category. With this score, the nursing home topped off a first-rate profile. Facilities that do well in this category tend to provide patients with better supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 98.48485 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is far higher than most nursing homes. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
