Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of receiving a strong overall rating, this facility also 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. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies 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

This facility also was elite in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of A-. Few facilities fared better in this category. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to ensure residents are well cared for. After we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia tragically can be a deadly ailment for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home does not leave this to chance. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Turning to the third area, this facility also earned a grade of B for its short-term care rating. This is an above average grade in this area. With our short-term care rating, we attempt to craft a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze a facility's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

The last category we graded is nursing. We awarded this facility one of our more favorable grades in this area, with a B. While this isn't as high as some of this nursing home's other scores, it is nevertheless a fine grade. There are quite a few criteria within this category. Many of these subcategories are tied to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as having a protocol of moving residents more often.
