Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of earning a strong overall grade, this facility fared even better in our inspections category which is associated with the nursing home's recent government inspections. In fact, we gave it an A for this category, which is one of our best grades. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite minor. 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-minus

Among this nursing home's other achievements is its first-rate short-term care grade. We gave them one of our most impressive grades in that area, with a score of A-. In crafting these short-term care ratings, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to create a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B+ for its nursing rating. This is a well above average score in this category. We assessed the skill-level of nurses at the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of hours the nurses were with patients, in computing our score in this category. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last category we analyzed was long-term care. We gave this nursing home a decent grade in that category, with a C. Although this is not on par with a few of this facility's other scores, it is nevertheless not a poor grade. Our long-term care grade focuses on a nursing home's assistance with daily living instead of the highly skilled therapy and healthcare services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 93.537415 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Nevertheless, this facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
