Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a great nursing home overall, it also earned A+ health inspections recently. Its inspections were nearly perfect. Inspection ratings weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area generally have very few of these severe deficiencies. This facility received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Adding to this facility's list of accomplishments, it also was given a very favorable long-term care score. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is far higher than the average nursing home. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

In addition, this facility also received favorable nursing grades this year. In fact, we awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B. Nursing ratings are largely associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last area we looked at is nursing, was this facility's worst area. We awarded this nursing home a D in this category. This is one of just a couple of weak links in an otherwise strong profile. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who ultimately returned home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
