Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home received a strong overall score as described above, but we especially would like to emphasize its nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We gave it an A+ in this area. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we were able to find deficiency data for this nursing home. Without having all of the deficiency data for this facility, it is difficult to evaluate it in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home performed well in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. The nursing grade analyzes a handful of components, but the most important one is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides an incredible 4.5 hours of nursing care per resident each day. Out of this total, many of the hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the more highly trained levels of nurses. On top of providing impressive levels of nursing care, this place also excelled in several of the quality measures we looked at. With below 5 percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the country in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home was awarded its next best category grade in the area of short-term care. We gave this nursing home a grade of B- in this area, which is a respectable score. Our short-term care grades are believed to be most critical for residents needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not only nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. One of this nursing home's strengths is registered nurse hours. We found that it offers more care from registered nurses to its residents than most facilities. Finally, we considered the number of residents that were able to return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next area we looked at is long-term care. We gave this facility a grade of C in this area. Long-term care grades focus on a nursing home's personal care rather than the highly skilled nursing or healthcare services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. Although we determined this facility had an above average volume of nursing hours provided by nurses and other nursing staff, we found its vaccination rate to be a bit below average. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to just 68 percent of its patients. This is one figure we would really like to see this nursing home bring up. Fortunately, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
