Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this place turned out to be a great nursing home is it earned an A+ inspection grade. This is as good as it gets in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are relatively insignificant. 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of A+. We scrutinized the skill-level of nurses working for the nursing home, in addition to the number of hours the nurses spent with patients, in computing our grade in this area. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home 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 often be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

The third category we looked at was long-term care. Contributing to its elite profile, this facility also performed well in this area. In fact, we awarded it a grade of of A for that area. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care typically provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 96.197716 percent of its patients. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents out of the hospital. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The final area we scored is short-term care. In this area, we awarded this facility a strong grade of B. In the area of short-term care, we try to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final statistic we considered in this category is the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that 3.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
