Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

On top of earning a great overall rating, this facility performed even better in the area of inspections which is associated with the nursing home's recent government inspection reports. In fact, we gave it an A- for this category, which is one of our highest scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively minor. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility is also strong in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B+. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. Our nursing grade is primarily tied to a nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.3 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 facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as employing a policy of moving patients at least once a day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to the third area, this facility also received a score of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is a well above average score in this area. In the category of short-term care, we strive to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final datapoint we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 5.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Moving on to the last area, this facility received a B- in long-term care, which is a decent score. For prospective residents in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. After assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. We were pleased to learn that this facility vaccinated 94.75655 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
