Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a first rate nursing home overall, this nursing home performed well in the area of inspections, where it earned an A+. Very few facilities fared this well in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite insignificant. This place received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also was awarded a impressive short-term care score. Indeed, this turned out to be this nursing home's second strongest category score. In that category, we awarded this facility a score of A. In forming these short-term care scores, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to formulate a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also received a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A-. There are a host of criteria within this area. Most of the datapoints are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This facility 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 nursing home 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 generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

The last area we scored was long-term care, where this facility was awarded a grade of A-. This rounded out a very strong profile. Few facilities received an A- or higher in all four categories. Nursing homes that excel in this category tend to provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. After considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 98.907104 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is much higher than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
