Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Our inspection grades are based on pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this category tend to have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. 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

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. In that category, we awarded this nursing home an A. Our nursing rating looks at the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of licensure of the nurses and the amount of time spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this facility 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 state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as employing a system of moving a resident more often.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Turning our third area, we awarded this facility a score of A for its long-term care grade. This is a first-rate score. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. After we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 97.297295 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly can be a life or death health condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In our final area, we gave this nursing home a grade of A+ for its short-term care grade. This rounded out a very strong profile. In our short-term care rating, we strive to forge a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze the facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
