Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home also earned an A+ inspection rating. This score is based on the facility's recent inspection reports. An A+ in this area is one of the best complements we can pay to a nursing home. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. It doesn't appear that we were able to find information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its first-rate profile, this nursing home also was awarded a strong long-term care score, with a score of A. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure residents are well cared for. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents out of the hospital. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Additionally, this nursing home also was given favorable short-term care grades this year. Indeed, we awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a score of B+. In determining our short-term care grades, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to devise a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last category we graded is this facility's worst area. However, even in its weakest link we still awarded it a respectable grade of B- for nursing. The nursing grade consists of a handful of factors, however, the paramount one is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This figure is far below the national average. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually a reliable indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place.
