Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home an A- for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. This turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this nursing home an B+. In calculating a nursing home's nursing rating, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses are seeing patients as well as the skill levels of those nurses. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of turning residents even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility was awarded a favorable long-term care score as well. We gave it one of our higher scores in that category with a score of B+. When facilities receive this type of score in this category it is usually a good sign for patient care and suggests that the facility is well-staffed with nurses aids. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly can be a life or death condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a nursing home does not leave this to chance. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Our last category is short-term care, where we gave this facility a C in this area. Our short-term care ratings are probably more critical for residents needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually mandates more highly-skilled nursing. This includes not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The last statistic we considered in this area is the number of patients that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.8 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
