Facility Inspections

Grade: A

We also would like to emphasize the fact that this nursing home has earned excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively minor. We were not able to locate information on deficiency's for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its top-shelf resume, this nursing home also performed well in our short-term care area. In fact, it received a score of A in the area. Our short-term care grade is typically used to measure a facility's rehabilitation services. To have highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to have higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the number of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Moving on our next area, this nursing home was awarded a top-shelf long-term care grade. In fact, we awarded it a score of A in this area. For prospective patients looking for a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. One of the factors we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. It does not appear that this nursing home provided data regarding vaccinations. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

The last area we graded is nursing, where this facility was awarded an A-. This finished off a very impressive profile. Only a select few facilities earned an A- or higher in all four categories. Nursing grades are largely tied to the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
