Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this category typically have few severe deficiencies. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. A deficiency-free inspection report is what we look for.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. Nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of A-. Our nursing score analyzes many subcategories, however, the main one is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. 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 place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to an additional strength for this facility, we gave them one of our more favorable scores in our short-term care category as well, with a B+. In our short-term care grade, we endeavor to create a fair measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at a facility's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we looked at in this category is the number of residents who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we analyzed was long-term care, in which this facility was awarded a grade of B-. This turned out to be this facility's least impressive area. This is nevertheless not a poor grade. Our long-term care scores are more meaningful for people in need of more conventional assistance related to activities of daily living. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is better than most nursing homes. This place keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
