Facility Inspections

Grade: A

One of the many reasons this ended up being a great nursing home is it received a very impressive grade in inspections. Inspections ended up being its best category. In this area, we gave this nursing home an A. Inspection scores are tied to many items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this area typically have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. 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 facility also was awarded a dominant short-term care grade, with a score of A. Our short-term care grades are vital for individuals needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We weren't able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final measure we considered in this category is the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also received a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A-. Nursing ratings are based in large part on nurse staffing levels. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a system of moving a patient more often.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Moving on to our final area, this nursing home was awarded a very strong long-term care rating. In fact, we gave it a grade of B+ in this area, rounding out one of our more favorable report cards. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 70.634926 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is slightly below what we expected but still a decent percentage. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
