Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of receiving a strong overall grade, this facility earned an A+ inspection score. This grade is based on the facility's recent inspection reports. An A+ in this area is one of the best complements we can offer a nursing home. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

Another reason we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received an A+ nursing grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. Our nursing score is largely tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

The third area we assessed is long-term care. This facility also was given an A+ long-term care grade, rendering it one of the few facilities to be awarded several A+ category grades. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia tragically can be a deadly illness for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Switching gears to our last category, this facility also excelled in our short-term care category. In fact, we gave it a grade of A- in this area. This topped off a straight A profile. In determining our short-term care scores, we analyze the facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This score is typically a useful assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation services. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of residents that ultimately returned 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.
