Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Arguably the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Grade: A-minus

This facility also was awarded a strong short-term care score. This actually ended up being this facility's third best category score. In that area, we awarded this facility a score of A-. In determining our short-term care scores, we scrutinize a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This area is generally a solid measure of the facility's rehabilitation. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last area we assessed proved to be this facility's poorest category. Nevertheless, even in its weakest link we still awarded it a decent grade of B- for our long-term care category. For prospective residents in need of a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is more than the vast majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
