Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of performing well overall, this nursing home earned a nearly flawless inspection report. Therefore, it earned one of our best grades in that area with an A+. Our inspection grades weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this category generally have few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Contributing to its top-shelf resume, this nursing home also received a superb short-term care score, with a grade of A. In forming these short-term care ratings, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to create a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final measure we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 6.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Turning the page to our next category, we gave this facility a score of A for its long-term care score. This is a very impressive grade. When nursing homes receive this type of grade in this category it is a good sign for resident care and indicates that the facility is well-staffed with nurses and aids. Once we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly is often a deadly health condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home does not take any chances. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

The final area we assessed was nursing, where this nursing home was given an A-. This finished off a very strong report card. Very few facilities received an A- or higher in all four categories. Our nursing score weighs a handful of data points, however, the most important consideration is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This particular nursing home provided 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility 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 many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
