Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of performing well overall, this facility earned a nearly flawless inspection report. Consequently, we gave it one of our best scores in this category with an A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite minor. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This tells you the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its impressive resume, this nursing home also excelled in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. Our nursing rating is mostly tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This facility also received a top-shelf short-term care score. In fact, this turned out to be this nursing home's third best category grade. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of A. In determining our short-term care scores, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to create a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last metric we considered in this category is the number of patients that who were able to eventually return 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: B

Moving on to our final area, this nursing home was awarded a strong long-term care rating. Although this was not as dominant as some of its other category grades, this remains one of our stronger scores we offer. When facilities receive this type of score in this category it is a good sign for resident care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 99.38271 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia tragically can be a deadly health condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility does not roll the dice on this issue. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
