Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This indicates that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also was given a top-shelf short-term care score. In fact, this is its second strongest category grade. In that category, we awarded this facility a score of A-. In calculating our short-term care grades, we size up a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This rating is frequently a solid assessment of the facility's rehabilitation. We weren't able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The final item we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 6.7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

The next category we analyzed is long-term care. Adding to its elite profile, this facility also performed well in that area. In fact, it received a of A- in that area. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in this category tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure residents are kept in good health. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 98.45679 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is far higher than most nursing homes. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we looked at is nursing, in which this nursing home was given a B-. Although this ended up being its least impressive category rating, this is nevertheless not a bad grade. Our nursing score assesses the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of licensure of those nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, although this nursing home got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of our quality metrics. With less than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this metric.
