Facility Inspections

Grade: A

One of the reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an impressive inspection rating. Inspections is its best category. In that area, we awarded this facility an A. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. 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. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility really excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. When computing a facility's nursing score, we assess the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents and the level of licensure of those nurses. This facility provided 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 place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also was given a strong short-term care score. In fact, we gave it an above average score of B+ in this area. In determining these short-term care grades, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to formulate a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 5.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we looked at was long-term care. In that area, we gave this facility an acceptable grade of B-. This turned out to be this facility's worst area. Long-term care grades focus on a nursing home's assistance with daily living instead of the highly skilled therapy and medical services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinates 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This place keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
