Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To pair with its great overall grade, we gave this facility an A for inspections. Our inspection scores weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this category usually have very few severe deficiencies. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies an imminent threat to resident health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its impressive profile, this facility also excelled in the category of nursing. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B+ for that category. Our nursing grade is mostly tied to a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to another strength for this facility, we awarded them one of our better grades in our long-term care category as well, with a B+. When nursing homes receive this type of grade in long-term care it is a good sign for patient care and indicates that the facility is well-staffed with nurses aids. After we finished assessing the quantity of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly can be a dangerous health condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a nursing home doesn't leave this to chance. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next category we rated was short-term care. This nursing home was given a favorable nursing score in our assessment, with a grade of B. While this is not as strong as several of its other category grades, this is still one of our more impressive scores for this category. In our short-term care grade, we try to craft a sound barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at the facility's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. It doesn't look like this nursing home provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The final metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that 4.9 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
