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. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we were able to find deficiency data for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility really excelled in the area of long-term care, where it received a score of A-. Few facilities performed better in this area. When nursing homes receive this type of score in long-term care it is typically a good sign for patient care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is significantly higher than most nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. This wasn't quite on par with some of its other category grades mentioned above. There are a number of criteria included in this grade. Many of the datapoints relate to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This facility averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, which is not an impressive total. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last area we graded is short-term care. This facility received an above average short-term care grade in our assessment, with a B-. Although this wasn't quite as good as a few of its other category grades, this is nevertheless a decent grade in that area. Our short-term care scores are arguably most meaningful for those needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional highly-skilled nursing. This includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
