Grade: A

On top of performing well in its overall grade, this nursing home performed at an even higher level in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A. Our inspection ratings are tied to several items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this area have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This means that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies to create an immediate risk to resident safety or health. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its impressive profile, this place also excelled in the area of nursing. In fact, we gave it an B+ for that category. Nursing ratings are primarily based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. With 4.9 hours of nursing care per patient each day, this place surpassed the vast majority of facilities. Lastly, this nursing home was also above average in each of the major quality-based metrics we assessed in this category. It performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Grade: B

In addition, this nursing home also was given favorable long-term care scores this year. In fact, we awarded it one of our more favorable grades in that category, with a score of B. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. After looking at the impressive nursing hours and other staffing provided by this nursing home, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 98.77049 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is far higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.26 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than many nursing homes.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Our next area is short-term care, in which we awarded this nursing home a grade of B- in that area. In calculating these short-term care ratings, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to create a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. This nursing home employs both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities employ these skilled professionals. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who ultimately returned home from this nursing home. This place fared better than most nursing homes in the country in this area with 51.6 percent of its patients returning home.
