Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of receiving an elite overall score, this nursing home earned an A+ inspection rating. This is based on the facility's recent inspection reports. An A+ in this category is one of the highest complements we can pay to a facility. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively minor. This place received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to be an immediate risk to resident 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-minus

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received a top-shelf score of A- in our long-term care area. Facilities that do well in long-term care tend to provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia tragically can be a life or death condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility does not leave this to chance. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility is also strong in the area of short-term care, where it was awarded a score of B+. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. Short-term care grades are typically employed to score a facility's rehabilitation services In order to offer highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to have higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility 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 considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

In the last category we rated, this facility was awarded an impressive grade grade of B+ in our nursing category. With this score, the facility finished off a very strong profile. Nursing scores are heavily correlated with nurse staffing levels. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility 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 state 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 at least once a day.
