Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving an elite overall rating, this facility earned an A+ inspection score. This grade is based on its recent inspection reports. An A+ in this category is one of the highest complements we can offer a facility. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively insignificant. This facility was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies an imminent risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this nursing home was superb in our long-term care category. We gave them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Facilities that excel in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is much higher than the average nursing home. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

Another reason we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received an A+ nursing grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. Our nursing grade assesses the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of training of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. This particular nursing home provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility 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 generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In the last category we analyzed, this facility was given a very strong grade of A in our short-term care category. With this grade, the nursing home wrapped up a straight A profile. With our short-term care category, we endeavor to forge a fair measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess a nursing home's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
