Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of receiving a strong overall grade, this facility also earned an A+ inspection rating. This score is based on the facility's recent government inspections. An A+ in this category is one of the best complements we can pay to a facility. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite insignificant. While this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility really excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Nursing scores are largely based on the facility's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 3.9 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which was above the national average. Lastly, this place also excelled in the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed as well as any facility the nation in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Turning to another strength for this facility, we gave them one of our better grades in our long-term care category as well, with a B. Nursing homes that do well in this category typically provide patients with better supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 95.757576 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly is often a dangerous illness for nursing home residents so we like it when a facility does not roll the dice on this issue. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.41 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we looked at was this nursing home's worst category. Nevertheless, even in its worst category we still gave it a decent grade of B- for our short-term care category. Short-term care ratings are vital for people in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a broad range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. We were extremely impressed to find that this facility offers its residents substantially more physical therapist hours than most other nursing homes. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. It performed decently in this area, with 46.8 percent of its residents returning home.
