Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the reasons this ended up being a quality facility is that it received a very impressive inspection rating. Inspections is its best category. In this area, we gave this facility an A+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively insignificant. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a favorable short-term care score. In fact, short-term care ended up being its second most favorable category grade. In that category, we awarded this facility a score of A-. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 5.4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. While this wasn't quite as good as some of its other category grades, this isn't a bad score either. Nursing scores are based largely on quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily, which is a very low figure. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this facility actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally a reliable indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last area we analyzed was long-term care. This facility received a C for the area. Long-term care grades are based on the facility's volume of care. This includes a broad spectrum of personal care services, ranging from help with activities of daily living to routine medical services. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. We were pleased to find that this facility vaccinated 96.74796 percent of its patients against pneumonia. This place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
