Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with better grades in this area typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home received strong marks in the area of short-term care. Consequently, it received one of our highest grades in that area with a grade of A+. With our short-term care assessment, we try to craft a meaningful measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze a facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 6.5 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Many of these factors reflect the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as employing a system of turning a patient more frequently.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

In the last category we scored, this nursing home was given an impressive grade grade of A- in our long-term care category. With this grade, the facility rounded out a straight A report card. When facilities receive this type of grade in long-term care it is usually a good sign for resident care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 99.49367 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients out of the hospital. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
