Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a great nursing home overall, it also received A+ inspections recently. Its inspections were virtually flawless. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite insignificant. 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

Adding to its dominant accomplishments in other areas, we gave this nursing home a grade of A for our long-term care rating. When facilities receive this kind of score in long-term care it is a good sign for resident care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses and aids. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 94.60133 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients healthy. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

The next area we assessed was short-term care. Adding to its top-shelf resume, this nursing home also performed well in this area. In fact, we awarded it a grade of of A- in the category. In forming our short-term care grades, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to create a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we scored was nursing. In that area, we gave this facility a decent grade of B-. This turned out to be this facility's worst category. The nursing grade assesses several data points, most of which are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. It scored well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
