Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a first rate nursing home overall, this nursing home also performed well in the area of inspections, where it received an A+. Very few places performed this well in this area. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also gave this facility a score of A- for our long-term care grade. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a great way to minimize unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the elderly population. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Another strong feature for this facility is that it received an impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B. Nursing ratings are based in large part on quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last category we analyzed is short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a solid grade of C. This is this nursing home's weakest area. Short-term care ratings are critical for individuals looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last item we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
