Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this facility also earned an A+ inspection score. This score is based on its recent government inspections. An A+ in this category is one of the highest complements we can offer a nursing home. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some are quite insignificant. While this facility had some 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

On the list of its many high-end grades, this nursing home was given an excellent long-term care grade. In fact, it received a grade of A- in that area. Nursing homes that excel in this category typically provide patients with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is often a deadly condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a nursing home doesn't 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. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also want to point out the fact that this facility received a strong score of A- in our short-term care category. In the area of short-term care, we try to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.6 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

The fourth area we looked at was nursing, where this nursing home was awarded a grade of A-. This finished off a very impressive report card. Only a select few nursing homes earned an A- or higher in in each area we assessed. We analyzed the licensure of nurses at the facility, as well as the number of hours those nurses worked with patients, in computing our score in this category. This nursing home averages 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
