Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this nursing home earned a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, we gave it one of our highest grades in this area with an A. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with 4 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 did not deem any of these deficiencies to create an imminent risk to resident safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Compounding its first-rate accomplishments in other areas, we gave this facility a score of A for our short-term care rating. With our short-term care rating, we attempt to craft a fair gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze the facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 6.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also received a strong nursing score. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this area. There are a variety of subcategories included in this category. Most of these datapoints relate to staffing levels. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of moving patients even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Moving on to our last area, this nursing home was awarded a decent long-term care rating. Even though this wasn't quite as good as some of its other scores, this is really not a poor grade. In the category of long-term care, we weigh the amount of care provided by a nursing home, rather than more healthcare-oriented services. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We were a bit worried that this facility administered the vaccine to just 86.206894 percent of its residents. Nevertheless, this nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
