Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this nursing home has received near flawless health inspections in recent years. We gave them an A+ in this area. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we gave this facility an A+. Our nursing score is based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of training of those nurses and the amount of time spent with residents. This facility provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home also received an A+ for its short-term care score. Our short-term care grades are considered to be more important for people needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional skilled nursing. This means not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final datapoint we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 5.9 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Turning to the next category, this nursing home received a highly favorable long-term care grade. We gave it an A in this category, giving this facility straight A's. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in this category it is usually a good sign for resident care and suggests that the facility is well-staffed with nurses and aids. After we finished assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia tragically can be a life or death condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a nursing home doesn't take any chances. 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.
