Facility Inspections

Grade: A

One of the reasons this ended up being a quality nursing home is it received an impressive inspection grade. Inspections ended up being its best category. In this category, we gave this facility a grade of A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite minor. 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

Among its many dominant scores, this nursing home was awarded an excellent short-term care score. In fact, we awarded it a score of A- in this area. In computing our short-term care ratings, we size up a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This category is frequently a fair measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.8 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Among its many impressive grades, this facility received an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A- in that category. When calculating a nursing home's nursing rating, we consider the number of hours nurses are caring for residents and the levels of training of the nurses. This facility provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home 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 generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Turning to our last category, this nursing home received an extremely favorable long-term care rating. While this was not nearly as good as many of its other scores, this remains one of the stronger scores we offer. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 75.48387 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be somewhat less than we expected but still a decent figure. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, we were pleased to find place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
