Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of being a quality nursing home overall, this place especially excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned a grade of A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Inspection ratings are tied to many items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that receive favorable grades in this area tend to have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This facility was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to resident 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-minus

Among the reasons we rated this nursing home so favorably is that it was awarded a dominant long-term care score. Indeed, long-term care is its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a score of A-. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 99.72067 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is far higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. 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 only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B+. We scrutinized the skill-level of nurses employed by the facility, as well as the number of hours those nurses spent with residents, in determining our score in this category. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in the area 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: B

Switching gears to the fourth category, this nursing home was given a very strong short-term care grade. This facility did not prove to have any real weaknesses. In forming these short-term care ratings, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to devise a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final item we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 5.4 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.
