Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its impressive profile, this facility also performed well in our long-term care area. In fact, we awarded it a score of A- for the category. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 99.11308 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is much higher than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Turning the page to our third area, we gave this nursing home a score of A- for its short-term care score. This is a first-rate grade. Our short-term care scores are thought to be most meaningful for people in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of skilled nursing services. This means not only nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to return home from the facility. We found that 5.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Switching gears to our fourth category, this nursing home was awarded an extremely favorable nursing score. We awarded it a B+ in this category, rounding out one of our better report cards. In determining a facility's nursing grade, we assess the amount of time nurses are seeing patients and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
