Facility Inspections

Grade: A

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is it received a very impressive grade in inspections. Inspections turned out to be its best category. In this area, we gave this nursing home an A. Our inspection scores weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this category tend to have few severe deficiencies. While this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

To add to its first-rate achievements in other areas, we gave this facility a grade of A for our short-term care rating. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this nursing home provided registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 6.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. Nursing scores are largely based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of moving a resident more often.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In our last category, this nursing home also was given a very strong long-term care score, with a grade of B+. This wrapped up an elite profile. Facilities that excel in this category typically provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
