Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this area typically have few severe deficiencies. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This facility also was dominant in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a score of A. Only a select group of nursing homes received a better grade in this area. In our short-term care category, we strive to craft a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess the facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last item we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 5.5 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

The third area we looked at was long-term care. This facility received a very positive long-term care grade, with a B+ in this category. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in this category tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure patients are kept in good health. One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours is vaccines. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 94.48819 percent of its patients. This is a reliable method to minimize unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the nursing home population. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

In the last category, we awarded this facility a grade of A+ for our nursing grade. This rounded out a first-rate report card. The nursing score weighs a host of factors. The most important variable is the number of hours nurses spent with patients. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
