Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this ended up being a great nursing home is it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this area. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home also received an A+ for its long-term care score. For long-term care residents, the primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. This nursing home's vaccination data were a bit weaker than some of its other datapoints in this category, such as its number of nursing hours per resident. This nursing home gave the pneumonia vaccine to just 90.47619 percent of its patients. We'd like to see some improvement in this area next year. Finally, we looked at its number of hospitalizations. Here we found that this facility had 2.63 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its impressive resume, this nursing home also excelled in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. Our nursing grade is based on a variety of subcategories. The most heavily weighted one is the number of hours nurses spend with patients. With 4.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day, this nursing home surpassed the overwhelming majority of facilities. Lastly, this nursing home was also above average in each of the major quality measures we looked at in this category. It performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next category we graded was short-term care. We gave this nursing home one of our better scores in that category, with a grade of B. Although this was not on par with a few of this nursing home's other grades, it is nevertheless a perfectly acceptable score. Our short-term care grades are likely most critical for folks in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically requires more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. Finally, we considered the number of patients that eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
