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. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with better scores in this area typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This nursing home was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies an imminent threat to resident 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-minus

This facility also excelled in the area of long-term care, where it received a score of A-. Few facilities fared better in this area. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is too frequently a life or death health condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a facility doesn't leave this to chance. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also received a strong nursing score. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this area. Our nursing score analyzes the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of skill of the nurses and the quantity of hours spent with patients. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by having a policy of turning patients more often.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Turning to the final category, this nursing home was given an acceptable short-term care rating. Even though this isn't nearly as good as a few of its other category grades, this is truly not a major area of concern. Our short-term care grade is commonly used to measure a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To provide quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to offer higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 4.2 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
