Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a first rate nursing home overall, this facility also excelled in our inspections category, where it earned a grade of A+. Very few nursing homes fared as well in this area. Our inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this area generally have 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.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Our nursing grade is primarily associated with a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility was given an impressive short-term care grade as well. We awarded it one of our better grades in that area with a grade of B. Our short-term care scores are critical for people looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a broad range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The final category we graded is long-term care, where this nursing home received a grade of B. While this proved to be its weakest category score, this is nevertheless a strong rating. When nursing homes receive this type of grade in this category it is a good sign for patient care and suggests that the facility is well-staffed with nurses aids. After we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is too frequently a deadly condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a nursing home doesn't take any chances. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
