Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To pair with its great overall grade, we awarded this facility a grade of A for inspections. Our inspection ratings account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this area typically have very few severe deficiencies. This facility received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to patient safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also was strong in the category of short-term care, where it received a grade of A-. Not many nursing homes performed better in this area. Short-term care ratings are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The final measure we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its strong resume, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with a grade of A-. Our nursing grade weighs a variety of subcategories. The most important variable is the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures 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 nursing home the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of turning patients at least once a day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The final area we analyzed is long-term care. This facility received an impressive nursing grade in our assessment, with a grade of B. Even though this was not as good as many of its other grades, this is nevertheless one of the more impressive grades in this category. Nursing homes that excel in this category tend to provide patients with closer supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is far higher than most nursing homes. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
