Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home also received first-rate government inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our better scores in this category, with an A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home is also above average in the area of long-term care, where it received a score of B+. It outperformed most nursing homes in this area. Facilities that receive this type of grade in long-term care tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure residents are well cared for. In addition to considering the impressive quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff at this facility, we also were pleased by the facility's vaccination statistics. For example, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also received a strong nursing score. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B in this area. The nursing score consists of quite a few components, most of which are based on nursing hours. This nursing home provides an extremely impressive 5 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is among the better totals in the state. Lastly, this facility also performed well in several of the quality measures we looked at. In terms of the number of its residents sustaining falls leading to major injury, this nursing home performed as well as any nursing home in the nation.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final area we assessed was short-term care, in which this nursing home was given a grade of B-. This actually was this nursing home's weakest category. This is still not a bad grade. Our short-term care grades are arguably more critical for individuals requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. We were extremely impressed to find that this facility offers its residents substantially more physical therapist hours than most other nursing homes. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents that were able to return home from this facility. We found that 44.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually below the national average.
