Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this facility also earned an A+ inspection grade. This grade is based on the facility's recent government inspections. An A+ in this area is one of the best complements we can pay to a facility. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively minor. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Among its many impressive grades, this facility was awarded a top-shelf long-term care score. In fact, we awarded it a score of A- in that category. When nursing homes receive this type of grade in long-term care it is usually a good sign for resident care and suggests that the facility is well-staffed with nurses and aids. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 97.30458 percent of its residents, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia can be a life threatening condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a nursing home does not leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also was awarded a favorable short-term care grade. Indeed, we gave it an above average grade of B+ in this area. In computing our short-term care ratings, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to formulate a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

The final category we analyzed is nursing, where this nursing home was awarded a grade of B+. This rounded out a very impressive report card. Only a select few nursing homes received a B+ or higher in each of our categories. We analyzed the levels of nurses employed by the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of time those nurses were with residents, in computing our score in this category. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
