Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its favorable overall score, we awarded this nursing home an A+ for inspections. Our inspection scores account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this area tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

On the list of its many dominant grades, this facility received an excellent short-term care score. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A in this area. Our short-term care scores are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a vast scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 5.8 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A in our nursing category. Our nursing score is largely associated with the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of avoiding 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

In our final area, this facility also received an excellent long-term care rating, with a B+. This rounded out a very strong report card. Facilities that excel in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 99.549545 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is much higher than most nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
