Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded this facility an A+ for our inspections rating. Inspection grades are tied to many pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that excel in this category tend to have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

Another reason we assessed this facility so favorably is that it received an A+ short-term care score. This is simply as dominant as it gets in this area. In calculating our short-term care grades, we scrutinize the facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This area is often a solid measure of a facility's rehabilitation. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 6.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also received a strong long-term care grade. Indeed, this ended up being this facility's third best category score. In that category, this facility received a score of A. Nursing homes that excel in this category tend to provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is significantly higher than most nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Switching gears to our last area, this facility was awarded a very strong nursing grade. In fact, we gave it an A in that category, giving this facility straight A's. There are a host of criteria included in this area. Most of these data points relate to the quantity of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 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 facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
