Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this place ended up being a great nursing home is it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

This facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. We weighed the licensure of nurses at the facility, in addition to the quantity of time those nurses were with residents, in determining our score in this area. This nursing home provides 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a system of turning a patient more often.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Building on its fine assessment, this nursing home also was given a superb long-term care grade, with a grade of A. When facilities receive this kind of score in this category it is a good sign for patient care and suggests that the facility is well-staffed with nurses and aids. One of the criteria we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccinations. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. This is a great way to minimize unnecessary hospitalizations for the aged 65 and up population. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

In our last category, we awarded this facility an A+ for our short-term care score. This wrapped up a very strong profile. In calculating our short-term care grades, we size up the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. This area is generally a meaningful assessment of the nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that 5.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
