Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home also earned an A+ inspection grade. This is based on its recent government inspections. An A+ in this category is one of the best complements we can pay to a facility. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. We weren't able to track down deficiency data 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 high-end profile, this nursing home also was awarded an excellent short-term care grade, with a score of A. In calculating our short-term care grades, we scrutinize a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This area is considered to be a reliable assessment of a facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. It does not appear that this facility provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that 7 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-minus

This nursing home also received a fine long-term care grade. Indeed, this is this facility's third strongest category grade. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of A-. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. We weren't able to track down information on vaccination rates. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

In the last category, we awarded this facility a A+ for our nursing grade. This rounded out a first-rate report card. The nursing rating features numerous data points. The most important variable is the number of hours nurses spent with residents. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at certain nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these statistics as good measures of the caliber of nursing care offered, since better care tends to reduce these problems.
