Facility Inspections

Grade: A

With an overall grade this high, it should come as no surprise that this facility excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively minor. We were not able to find deficiency data for this nursing home. Without having access to the deficiency data for this nursing home, it ended up being a challenge to really assess the place in the inspections category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A in our nursing category. Our nursing score is mostly tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Moving on our third category, this nursing home was awarded a strong short-term care score. In fact, it received a score of A- in that area. Our short-term care grades are likely most meaningful for individuals in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.7 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In our final area, we awarded this facility an A for its long-term care score. This completed a first-rate report card. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents healthy. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
