Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Arguably the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better grades in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. It doesn't appear that we have information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

An additional reason we assessed this nursing home so highly is that it was given an A+ long-term care grade. This is simply as strong as it gets in this area. Facilities that receive this kind of score in long-term care typically provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure patients are kept in good health. After assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients healthy. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A in our nursing category. Our nursing score analyzes the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of training of the nurses as well as the amount of time spent with residents. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the country 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 protocol of moving a resident more often.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Moving on to our final area, this facility received a high-end short-term care grade. In fact, we gave it a B+ in that area, wrapping up one of our finer report cards. Our short-term care ratings are considered to be most important for patients needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not just nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we looked at in this category is the number of patients that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
