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. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Sadly, this place received a category L deficiency, which was unexpected based on its inspection rating. This category of deficiency means inspectors discovered a widespread deficiency putting patient health or safety in imminent danger. In spite of this major red flag, other aspects of this facility's inspection report gave us some hope.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Among its many impressive scores, this facility received a top-shelf long-term care score. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A in this category. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in long-term care it is usually a good sign for resident care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is far higher than most nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its strong resume, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with a grade of A-. In calculating our nursing grades, we analyze both nursing hours and the skill levels of the nurses. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The final category we scored is short-term care, where this facility was awarded a B. Believe it or not, this ended up being this nursing home's least impressive category. A facility could be doing a lot worse when their worst grade still is better than most other facilities. In our short-term care grade, we endeavor to forge a sound gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess a facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 3.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
