Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a great nursing home overall, it also received A+ inspections recently. Its inspections were nearly flawless. Inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this category tend to have very few severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its elite accomplishments in other areas, we gave this facility a score of A for its short-term care score. In calculating our short-term care grades, we assess the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This area is generally a useful measure of the facility's rehabilitation services. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. 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. The last item we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 5.7 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A in our nursing category. When calculating a facility's nursing grade, we look at the number of hours nurses spend with residents as well as the level of licensure of those nurses. This particular nursing home provided 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a system of turning patients more frequently.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Switching gears to the last category, this facility also performed well in our long-term care category. In fact, we gave it a B+ for this area. This rounded out a first-rate profile. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 99.484535 percent of its residents, which is far higher than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
