Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of faring well overall, this facility earned a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in this category with an A.

You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This tells you the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple relatively minor dings are not something to panic about.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We also wanted to point out the fact that this facility received a first-rate score of A in our short-term care category. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we analyze a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This area is frequently a useful measure of the facility's rehabilitation services. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its strong resume, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with a grade of A. Nursing scores are mostly associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics 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 nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of moving a patient more often.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Switching gears to our fourth area, this facility received a respectable long-term care score. While this isn't quite as strong as several of its other grades, this is truly not a poor grade. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. One of the factors we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccines. It doesn't appear that this facility provided data regarding vaccinations. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
