Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of performing well overall, this facility also earned nearly flawless government inspections. Consequently, it earned one of our highest scores in that category with an A+. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent 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 top notch nursing home also performed remarkably in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a score of A+. Very few facilities fared better in this category. When facilities receive this type of grade in long-term care it is a good sign for resident care and suggests that the facility is well-staffed with nurses aids. After we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is often a deadly illness for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A in our nursing category. Nursing scores are largely associated with a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home 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 nursing home 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: B-minus

The final category we assessed is short-term care. This nursing home was awarded a better than average short-term care rating in our assessment, with a B-. Even though this is not as elite as many of its other scores, this is still a respectable score in that area. Our short-term care ratings are believed to be more meaningful for individuals requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This means not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.
