Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of receiving a strong overall grade, this nursing home also earned first-rate government inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our best scores in that area, with a grade of A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite insignificant. This particular nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home performed well in the area of long-term care. Indeed, we gave it a grade of A for that category, which turns out to be one of our most impressive scores. Nursing homes that excel in this category typically provide residents with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. One of the factors we considered after nursing hours was vaccines. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 96.37681 percent of its residents. This is a reliable method to minimize negative health outcomes for the elderly population. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility really excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Nursing scores are mostly tied to a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last area we graded is short-term care, in which this facility was awarded a C. This actually ended up being this nursing home's worst category. This is still a middle of the pack score. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a wide spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final item we looked at in this category is the number of residents that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 5 percent of this facility's patients returned home. This figure was below the national average.
