Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a strong facility overall, it also earned A+ government inspections recently. Its inspections were virtually perfect. Inspection scores account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area usually have few of these severe deficiencies. Although this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We also gave this facility a score of A for our long-term care score. Facilities that do well in long-term care tend to provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly is often a life or death illness for nursing home patients so we like it when a facility doesn't take any chances. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Turning to an additional strength for this nursing home, we awarded them one of our more positive scores in our short-term care category as well, with a B. Short-term care grades are vital for residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing. This includes a vast scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last metric we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 5.5 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we analyzed was nursing, where this nursing home received a grade of B-. Although this wound up being its least impressive category score, this is nevertheless not a bad grade. There are a host of criteria included in this grade. Most of these subcategories are tied to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures. While this facility got docked a bit for nursing hours, it excelled in some of these quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this statistic. This is often an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of turning patients at least once a day.
