Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Our inspection ratings account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area typically have few of these severe deficiencies. 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

This exemplary facility also fared very well in the area of long-term care, where it received a grade of A+. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients, which is significantly higher than the average nursing home. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility was given a favorable short-term care score as well. We gave it one of our better grades in that area with a score of B. Our short-term care scores are arguably most important for those requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. We weren't able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The last item we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who returned home from the nursing home. We found that 6.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The next area we scored was nursing. We awarded this facility a decent score in this category, with a grade of C. Although this was not on par with some of its other scores, it is nevertheless not a major area of concern. The nursing score analyzes quite a few data points, but the most important consideration is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, while this facility got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in some of our quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this subcategory.
