Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to performing well overall, this nursing home earned a nearly flawless inspection report. Therefore, it earned one of our best scores in that area with an A+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite insignificant. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its first-rate resume, this nursing home also excelled in our long-term care area. In fact, it received a score of A in that category. Facilities that excel in this category typically provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. Once we finished looking at the amount of nursing care, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 94.94949 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is too frequently a life or death ailment for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also excelled in the category of short-term care, where it received a grade of A-. Very few nursing homes fared better in this area. Our short-term care grades are arguably more meaningful for people requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally requires additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

The final category we assessed is nursing. This facility was awarded a strong nursing grade in our assessment, with a grade of B. While this wasn't as impressive as several of its other scores, this is still one of the more impressive grades for that area. The nursing rating includes quite a few subcategories, however, the primary one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also factored a few quality-based metrics into our nursing grades. This place was relatively weak in two of the major areas we focus on, with below average scores for minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. These areas are generally reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care provided.
