Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of receiving a strong overall score, this facility also received an A+ inspection score. This score is based on the facility's recent government inspections. An A+ in this area is one of the highest complements we can pay to a nursing home. Arguably the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also received a very impressive nursing grade. In fact, this turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A. Nursing scores are primarily associated with a facility's nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of moving a patient more frequently.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to our next area, this facility also received a grade of B+ for its long-term care rating. This is a well above average grade in this area. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. One of the datapoints we considered on top of nurse's aid hours is vaccines. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 94.64883 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a proven method to avoid unnecessary deaths for the aged 65 and up population. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The last category we rated was short-term care. This nursing home was awarded a better than average nursing grade this year, with a grade of B. Even though this isn't quite as impressive as some of its other category grades, this is nevertheless one of the stronger scores in this area. Our short-term care grades are based on a facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a broad range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 4.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
