Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is just about as good as it gets in this very important category. Inspection scores are based on many items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this area tend to have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Grade: A

This facility also was strong in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of A. Not many facilities fared better in this category. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly is often a deadly illness for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't leave this to chance. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Additionally, this nursing home also was awarded favorable short-term care scores in our assessment. In fact, we awarded them one of our stronger scores in that area, with a score of B+.

Skilled nursing includes a vast spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

In our last area, we awarded this facility a grade of A+ for its nursing score. This finished off an elite report card. The nursing score considers numerous data points. The most important variable is the amount of time nurses spend with patients. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
