Facility Inspections


To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively 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. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Nurse Quality


This facility is also strong in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. Nursing ratings are mostly associated with the facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 3.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality


Turning to our next category, this facility also earned a score of B for its short-term care rating. This is an above average grade in this category. Our short-term care grade is typically used to measure a facility's rehabilitation services To offer highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally must feature higher levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. One of this nursing home's strength is that it offers more hours of physical therapy per week to its residents. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients that eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality


The next area we assessed is long-term care, in which this nursing home was given a grade of B. This facility ended up being strong across the board. For patients looking for a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Unfortunately, it does not look like this facility provided information about vaccinations. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
