Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This facility received a quality overall score as described above, but we especially want to point out its excellent government inspections in recent years. We gave them an A- in this area. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This particular nursing home received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A-. Our nursing score considers a number of factors. The most important one is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This facility provided 0.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a system of turning a patient more frequently.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

The next area we looked at is long-term care. This facility received a very positive long-term care score, with a grade of B+ in the area. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care ratings. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 91.76471 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which happens to be a few points less than we expected but still a decent figure. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next area we analyzed is short-term care, in which this nursing home received a grade of B. This facility didn't prove to have any weak grades. Short-term care ratings are meaningful for patients looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional skilled nursing. This means a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final metric we considered in this area is the percentage of patients that were able to return home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
