Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is it earned an A+ inspection grade. This is just about as good as it gets in this critical area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. This particular nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Among its many elite scores, this nursing home was awarded a top-shelf short-term care grade. In fact, it received a score of A in this area. In our short-term care grade, we try to create a sound barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess the nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last item we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that 5.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Among its many impressive grades, this facility received an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A- in that category. Our nursing grade looks at the facility's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of skill of the nurses and the amount of time spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics 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 nursing home the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as employing a policy of moving a patient even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next area we looked at was long-term care, in which this nursing home was given a grade of C. Although this turned out to be its least impressive category score, this is nevertheless not a bad grade. If you are looking for anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care ratings. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is more than the average nursing home. This place also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
