Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being an elite facility overall, this nursing home also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of A+. Few facilities fared this well in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. While this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A few relatively minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This facility also was elite in the area of short-term care, where it received a score of A. Few facilities fared better in this category. Short-term care grades are important for people looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a wide range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We weren't able to track down registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that 7.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B. Our nursing rating is largely tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a system of moving residents more often.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next category we graded was long-term care. We awarded this facility one of our higher scores in that category, with a B. Although this was not on par with a few of this nursing home's other grades, it is nevertheless a perfectly acceptable score. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in this category tend to provide consistent around the clock care to make sure residents are well cared for. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents, which is far higher than most nursing homes. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
