Facility Inspections

Grade: A+

To pair with its favorable overall grade, we awarded this place an A+ for our inspections rating. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This nursing home was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A- in our nursing category. Nursing grades are largely associated with a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also was elite in the category of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of A-. Only a select group of facilities received a better grade in this category. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care typically are well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 94.871796 percent of its residents, which is better than most nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In the final category we analyzed, this facility received a very favorable grade of B+ in our short-term care category. With this grade, the facility topped off a very favorable profile. With our short-term care category, we strive to craft a fair gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze the facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents that returned home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
