Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of performing well overall, this nursing home received a nearly flawless inspection report. Therefore, it earned one of our best scores in that category with an A+. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies an immediate threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Among its many elite scores, this nursing home received first-rate short-term care grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A in this category. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a vast spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this nursing home submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The last measure we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 6.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to the next area, this nursing home also received a score of B+ for its long-term care rating. This is a well above average score in this area. When nursing homes receive this type of score in this category it is a good sign for patient care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 94.51219 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last category we assessed was nursing. In this category, we gave this facility a decent grade of B-. This was this nursing home's worst area. Nursing ratings are based largely on levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided just 0 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a relatively low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics. Although this place got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of these quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed well in this subcategory. This is often a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a system of turning patients more often.
