Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a great overall grade, this facility also received A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections were virtually flawless. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively minor. This nursing home was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This facility also fared very well in the area of long-term care, where it received a score of A. Very few nursing homes fared better in this area. Nursing homes that excel in this category typically provide residents with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. After we finished assessing the volume of care provided by nurses, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia can be a deadly illness for nursing home patients so we like it when a facility doesn't take any chances. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Turning our next category, this facility received first-rate short-term care score. In fact, it received a score of A- in this area. Short-term care grades are meaningful for individuals requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires additional skilled nursing. This means a broad range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The next category we rated ended up being this nursing home's worst area. However, even in its worst category we still awarded it an acceptable grade of C in nursing. We analyzed the levels of nurses employed by the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of hours those nurses spent with residents, in determining our score in this category. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.
