Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a strong nursing home overall, it also received A+ government inspections recently. Its inspections were nearly perfect. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. In that category, we awarded this facility an A+. There are quite a few criteria within this grade. Many of these subcategories are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Turning our next category, this nursing home was awarded first-rate long-term care grade. In fact, we awarded it a score of A in this area. Facilities that do well in this category tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. Once we concluded our assessment of the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly can be a life threatening condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a facility doesn't take any chances. Clearly, this facility 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 figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

The fourth area we analyzed was short-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a grade of A-. This topped off a very impressive profile. Only a select few nursing homes earned an A- or better in every single category. In computing our short-term care scores, we look at the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This score is often a solid measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation services. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
