Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a great overall grade, this facility also received A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections were virtually flawless. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Contributing to this nursing home's list of accomplishments, it also was given a first-rate short-term care grade. We awarded them a strong grade of A- in this area. In calculating these short-term care scores, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to devise a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home received a strong long-term care score as well. We awarded it one of our higher grades in that area with a grade of B. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. One of the datapoints we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 97.54601 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a great way to minimize unnecessary deaths for the elderly population. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we looked at is nursing. This nursing home received a favorable nursing score in our assessment, with a B-. Although this is not nearly as elite as several of its other scores, this is still a decent grade in that category. There are many factors within this grade. Many of these data points are tied to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a low total compared with most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
