Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to performing well overall, this facility earned a nearly flawless inspection report. Therefore, it earned one of our highest grades in that category with an A+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite minor. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also was awarded a strong short-term care grade. This actually is this nursing home's second most impressive category score. In that area, this facility received a grade of A-. Our short-term care grades are probably more critical for those requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not only nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

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. The nursing grade is based on several factors. The most important factor is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. This nursing home averages 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 nursing home performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Turning to our next category, this facility received an extremely favorable long-term care grade. In fact, we gave it an A- in this category, giving this facility straight A's. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in this category typically provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure residents are well cared for. Once we finished looking at the amount of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 99.53271 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is often a life threatening ailment for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility does not leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this place 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 number.
