Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to receiving a quality overall score, this nursing home also received excellent health inspections recently. We awarded it one of our highest grades in that area, with an A. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its high-end profile, this facility also was awarded a dominant short-term care score, with a score of A-. Short-term care grades are important for patients requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a vast range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A- in our nursing category. Our nursing score is mostly associated with the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Moving on to the next category, this nursing home also performed well in the long-term care category. In fact, we gave it a grade of A- in that area. This wrapped up truly elite report card. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. After assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 87.586205 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is somewhat less than we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable figure. 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 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
