Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it earned an A+ in short-term care. Our short-term care grade is commonly used to judge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to provide quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to have better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 6.5 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home also received an A+ inspection score, making it one of the few nursing homes to receive multiple A+'s in our category grades. This is based on the nursing home's inspections. An A+ in this area is one of the best complements we can pay to a nursing home. Inspection scores are tied to several pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that score well in this category have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This place received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies an immediate risk to resident health or safety. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its strong resume, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with a grade of A-. The nursing grade weighs a host of subcategories. The most heavily weighted variable is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures 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: B-minus

Turning to the final category, this nursing home was awarded a decent long-term care score. While this isn't as impressive as some of its other category grades, this is really not the end of the world. Our long-term care grades are based on the nursing home's volume of care. This means a broad scope of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine medical services. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We weren't able to locate information about this nursing home's vaccination rates. Finally, this facility excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
