Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a first rate facility overall, this facility also performed well in the area of inspections, where it earned an A+. Few facilities fared this well in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively minor. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that we have deficiency counts for this nursing home. We wish we had more information about this facility. Without information regarding deficiencies, it is difficult to evaluate this facility in the area of inspections.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Among this facility's other strengths is its elite nursing grade. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of A-. Nursing grades are mostly associated with a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next area we assessed was short-term care. This facility was awarded an above average short-term care score, with a B in the area. Short-term care grades are based on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next category we scored is long-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a C. This is this nursing home's weakest category. This is still nothing to be ashamed of. For residents in need of a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 99.02913 percent of its patients, which is better than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
