Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the reasons this place ended up being a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is as good as it gets in this area. Our inspection scores weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this category generally have few of these severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This means the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its impressive resume, this nursing home also excelled in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. Our nursing score is largely associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of moving a resident even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home was given an impressive grade of A- in our long-term care area. Facilities that excel in this category typically provide residents with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. After looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 95.3271 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is better than the vast majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Switching gears to our next category, this nursing home was given an excellent short-term care rating. We gave it a grade of A- in this category, resulting in this facility receiving straight A's. With our short-term care category, we try to forge a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess the facility's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients that were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
