Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of receiving a strong overall grade, this facility also received first-rate government inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better scores in this area, with a grade of A. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better grades in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Among this nursing home's other achievements is its dominant long-term care score. We gave them one of our more favorable grades in that area, with a score of A-. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients out of the hospital. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Another strong feature for this facility is that it received an impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B. Our nursing grade weighs many subcategories, however, the paramount one is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provides 3.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed better than average in this area. This is often a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final category we graded was short-term care, in which this nursing home was given a B-. This actually was this nursing home's weakest area. This is still not a bad grade. Our short-term care grades are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a wide scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. This nursing home employs both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities employ these skilled professionals. The final item we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. This place was respectable in this metric with 47.9 percent of its patients returning home.
