Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its strong resume, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with a grade of A. There are a number of datapoints included in this grade. Most of the criteria relate to the quantity of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this place 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 typically be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of moving a resident even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Compounding its remarkable assessment, this nursing home also received a strong long-term care score, with a score of A. When facilities receive this type of score in this category it is a good sign for resident care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. One of the datapoints we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccines. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 98.809525 percent of its residents. This is a reliable method to minimize unnecessary hospitalizations for the aged 65 and up population. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In the last category we rated, this nursing home received a very favorable grade of B+ in our short-term care category. With this score, the nursing home finished off an elite profile. In the category of short-term care, we try to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 4.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
