Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this facility also earned an A+ inspection score. This grade is based on the facility's recent government inspections. An A+ in this area is one of the highest complements we can pay to a facility. Our inspection scores account for several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this area tend to have very few severe deficiencies. While this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. A couple relatively minor dings are not necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Our nursing grade is mostly tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 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 typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Turning our next category, we awarded this facility a grade of A- for its short-term care score. This is a superb score. Short-term care grades are meaningful for residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional skilled nursing services. This means a wide range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the number of residents that ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that 5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Turning to our last category, this nursing home also excelled in our long-term care category. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that area. This topped off a straight A profile. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 95.01385 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is higher than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
