Facility Inspections

Grade: A+

In addition to being a first rate nursing home overall, this nursing home performed well in our inspections category, where it earned a grade of A+. Very few places performed as well in this area. Our inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies.

Our nursing grade is primarily associated with the facility's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.5 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 facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

The next category we analyzed was short-term care. Contributing to its superb resume, this nursing home also performed well in this area. In fact, we gave it a grade of of A in the area. With our short-term care category, we endeavor to forge a sound measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at the facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final statistic we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Grade: A

In the last category we looked at, this facility received a very strong grade of A in our long-term care category. With this score, the nursing home rounded out a straight A profile. When facilities receive this kind of grade in this category it is a good sign for patient care and suggests that the facility is well-staffed with nurses and aids. Once we concluded our assessment of the quantity of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly can be a life threatening health condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
