Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this ended up being a quality nursing home is it received an A+ inspection grade. This is just about as good as it gets in this very important category. Inspection grades account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this category usually have very few severe deficiencies. 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: B-plus

This facility also was awarded a strong short-term care score. In fact, we awarded it an above average score of B+ in this area. Our short-term care ratings are believed to be most meaningful for those requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes 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 all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Additionally, this nursing home also was given favorable long-term care grades in our assessment. Indeed, we awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in long-term care tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure patients are well cared for. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 98.933334 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia tragically can be a life or death illness for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility does not leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Switching gears to our final area, this facility was given a high-end nursing grade. This nursing home did not turn out to have any weak grades. Our nursing grade is mostly tied to a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
