Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a strong nursing home overall, it also received A+ inspections recently. Its inspections were virtually flawless. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also awarded this facility a score of A+ for its long-term care grade. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. After we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 99.28058 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is often a dangerous illness for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home doesn't take any chances. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Among its many impressive grades, this facility received an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A- in that category. Our nursing score is mostly tied to a nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms 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-minus

Turning to our next area, this nursing home received an acceptable short-term care grade. Even though this is not quite as impressive as a few of its other scores, this is still not a major area of concern. Our short-term care grades are critical for prospective residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a wide range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well below the national average.
