Facility Inspections

Grade: A

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this nursing home has received excellent health inspections in recent years. We gave them an A in this area. Inspection grades account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this category typically have few severe deficiencies. While this place had a few deficiencies on its 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also excelled in the area of short-term care, where it received a score of A-. Only a select group of nursing homes performed better in this area. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we size up the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. This area is considered to be a reliable measure of the facility's rehabilitation. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last item we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A- in our nursing category. There are a host of datapoints included in this area. Many of these datapoints relate to the quantity of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Turning to our final category, this facility also performed well in our long-term care category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that area. This rounded out a straight A report card. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in long-term care typically provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure residents are kept in good health. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 64.85355 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be a bit below what we anticipated but still a respectable percentage. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
