Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Inspection ratings are based on many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that excel in this category tend to have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. 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

Among its many high-end grades, this facility was awarded first-rate long-term care grade. In fact, we gave it a score of A in this category. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care tend to provide patients with closer supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. After we finished assessing the volume of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia tragically can be a life or death illness for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility does not take any chances. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Turning our third area, this nursing home was given first-rate short-term care score. In fact, we gave it a score of A- in this area. Our short-term care grades are critical for people in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a broad spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last metric we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

In our final area, we gave this facility a grade of A+ for our nursing score. This topped off a first-rate report card. Our nursing rating considers several factors. The most heavily weighted factor is the quantity of hours nurses spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
