Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of receiving a great overall grade, this facility earned an A+ inspection grade. This is based on the facility's recent inspection reports. An A+ in this category is one of the highest complements we can pay to a nursing home. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively minor. 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of A. In calculating a nursing home's nursing rating, we look at the number of hours nurses commit to patients and the skill levels of those nurses. This particular nursing home provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this place 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 employing a policy of turning residents at least once a day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Moving on our next area, this facility received a top-shelf short-term care score. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- in that category. In our short-term care rating, we strive to create a sound barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at a facility's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final measure we looked at in this category is the number of patients that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Turning to the next area, this nursing home received a highly favorable long-term care grade. We awarded it a grade of A- in this category, resulting in this facility receiving straight A's. Nursing homes that do well in this category typically provide patients with better supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. One of the factors we considered after nursing hours was vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 97.792496 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a great way to avoid negative health outcomes for the aged 65 and up population. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
