Facility Inspections

Grade: A

We also would like to emphasize that this facility has earned nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We gave them an A in this area. Inspection grades are based on several datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this category typically have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This nursing home was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to create an immediate risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

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 is primarily based on a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at 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 place the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of moving a resident at least once a day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Turning our next area, we awarded this facility a grade of A for our long-term care rating. This is a superb grade. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is a good sign for patient care and suggests that the facility is well-staffed with nurses aids. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 98.48485 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia can be a dangerous health condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't take any chances. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

In the final category, we awarded this facility a grade of A for our short-term care score. This completed an elite profile. Our short-term care scores are presumably most critical for individuals requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually requires more highly-skilled nursing. This means not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
