Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of performing well overall, this nursing home also earned a nearly flawless inspection report. Consequently, it earned one of our best grades in that area with an A+. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home was superb in our long-term care category. We gave them an elite score of A+ in this area. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. One of the statistics we considered after this facility's impressive nursing hours is vaccines. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccines are a great way to avoid unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for seniors. Finally, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. We found that this place had 2.66 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this facility also received favorable nursing grades this year. In fact, we awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. In computing a facility's nursing grade, we look at the amount of time nurses commit to residents as well as the levels of training of the nurses. This place provides an incredible 4.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is much more care than what is offered by most nursing homes. Finally, this nursing home was also above average in each of the major quality-based metrics we assessed in this category. By way of illustration, it performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. These areas are generally reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care a facility provides.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last category we graded was short-term care. We awarded this nursing home an acceptable grade in this area, with a C. Although this is not as favorable as some of this nursing home's other grades, it is still not the end of the world. In crafting these short-term care scores, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to create a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 30.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually below the national average.
