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. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some are relatively minor. We were not able to locate deficiency data for this nursing home. We would like to have more data for this nursing home. Without having access to all of the deficiency related data, it ended up being challenging to grade this nursing home in terms of this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home performed remarkably in our short-term care category. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this area. In our short-term care category, we strive to create a fair barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze a facility's levels 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 all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 7.2 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B. We scrutinized the skill-level of nurses employed by the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses spent with patients, in computing our score in this area. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at 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 frequently be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as employing a policy of turning residents even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next area we scored was long-term care. In this category, we awarded this facility a decent grade of C. This actually proved to be this facility's weakest category. In computing our long-term care scores, we look at the facility's ability to maintain its permanent residents' health and quality of life. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 97.67442 percent of its patients, which is more than the average nursing home. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
