Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of earning a quality overall score, this facility also received excellent health inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our highest grades in that area, with an A. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even 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. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Contributing to its strong resume, this facility also was awarded an excellent short-term care grade, with a score of A. In the area of short-term care, we strive to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 6.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this facility also received favorable nursing grades this year. In fact, we awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. Our nursing score focuses on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of skill of those nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this place 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 nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of moving patients even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we assessed is long-term care. We gave this nursing home a solid grade in this category, with a grade of B-. Although this wasn't as strong as several of its other grades, it is nevertheless nothing to be ashamed of. In the area of long-term care, we analyze the amount of care offered by a facility, rather than more medically-intensive services. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 95.53903 percent of its patients. This place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
