Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of performing well overall, this nursing home also earned nearly flawless government inspections. Therefore, it earned one of our highest grades in that category with an A+. Our inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this category typically have few severe deficiencies. While this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its strong resume, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with a grade of A-. Nursing scores are largely tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also was strong in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of A-. Few nursing homes fared better in this area. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. One of the factors we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a proven method to avoid unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the nursing home population. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Moving on to the fourth area, this facility received a strong short-term care score. We awarded it a B+ in that area, rounding out one of our more impressive report cards. In determining our short-term care ratings, we look at the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. This category is typically a solid measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
