Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being an elite facility overall, this nursing home also performed well in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of A+. Very few nursing homes performed as well in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite insignificant. 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also received a very impressive nursing grade. In fact, this turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A. The nursing score considers many datapoints. The most important factor is the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients. 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 place 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 often be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This facility also received a impressive short-term care grade. This actually is this nursing home's third strongest category grade. In that area, this facility received a score of A. In our short-term care rating, we attempt to forge a valuable measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess the facility's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

The final area we looked at is long-term care, where this nursing home was given an A. This finished off an elite report card. Few nursing homes earned an A- or better in each of our categories. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents. One of the data points we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 95.84981 percent of its residents. This is a reliable method to avoid unnecessary deaths for the nursing home population. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
