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. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also fared very well in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a score of A. Very few facilities fared better in this area. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in long-term care typically provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure patients are kept in good health. After we finished assessing the volume of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 98.49246 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia can be a life threatening condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. The nursing rating consists of quite a few factors, many of which are associated with levels of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 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 in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to our final area, this nursing home also performed admirably in the short-term care category. We awarded it a grade of B+ in this category. This finalized a very impressive profile. With our short-term care score, we endeavor to craft a sound measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess a nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that 5.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
