Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a great nursing home overall, it also received A+ inspections in recent years. Its inspections are virtually flawless.

Places with higher scores in this area typically have very few severe deficiencies.

Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home received impressive marks in the category of long-term care as well. As a result, we gave it one of our most dominant scores in that area with a area of A-. Facilities that excel in long-term care tend to provide residents with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 99.528305 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is far higher than most nursing homes. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Moving on our third area, this facility received a strong short-term care grade. In that category, we gave this facility a A-.

We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. We weren't able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.8 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The next category we rated is nursing, where this nursing home was awarded a grade of C. This ended up being this facility's worst category. This is nevertheless not a terrible score. There are quite a few criteria within this category. Many of these subcategories are tied to the quantity of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics. Although this place got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of these quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this area. This is often an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a system of moving a resident more frequently.
