Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being an elite facility overall, this facility also performed well in the area of inspections, where it earned an A+. Very few places performed as well in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are quite minor. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This facility fared well in our short-term care category. Indeed, we awarded it a score of A for that category, which happens to be one of our best scores. In the area of short-term care, we seek to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This facility is also strong in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. There are several criteria included in this category. Most of these factors reflect staffing levels. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at 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 place the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of moving a patient more frequently.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last area we graded is long-term care. In this area, we awarded this facility an acceptable grade of C. This actually ended up being this facility's weakest category. In the area of long-term care, we analyze the quantity of services offered by a nursing home, rather than more sophisticated services. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home vaccinated 94.84241 percent of its residents, which is a very solid total. This facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
