Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a strong facility overall, it also received A+ inspections recently. Its inspections are virtually perfect. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its fine assessment, this facility also was awarded a strong long-term care grade, with a score of A. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 98.91304 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is significantly higher than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also was dominant in the area of short-term care, where it received a grade of A. Few nursing homes fared better in this category. In crafting these short-term care ratings, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to formulate a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this nursing home provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The final measure we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 6.3 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final category we graded is nursing. We awarded this facility an acceptable grade in this area, with a B-. While this isn't as high as many of this nursing home's other scores, it is still a middle of the pack score. The nursing score includes quite a few data points, however, the primary one is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a much lower figure than we were hoping for. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it scored well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
