Historical

In addition to being an elite facility overall, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned a grade of A+. Few places performed as well in this area. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

Among its many dominant grades, this facility was awarded a top-shelf long-term care score. In fact, it received a grade of A- in this area. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia tragically can be a deadly health condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home does not take any chances. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

This nursing home also performed well in the area of short-term care, where it received a score of A-. Very few nursing homes received a better grade in this category. In computing our short-term care ratings, we analyze a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This category is frequently a fair measure of the facility's rehabilitation services. This place is above average both in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return home from this nursing home. It performed better than most nursing homes in this area with 50.5 percent of its patients able to return home.

Historical

The final area we analyzed is nursing. We awarded this facility one of our higher scores in that area, with a grade of B. Although this wasn't as high as some of this facility's other grades, it is still an excellent grade. The nursing category consists of quite a few factors, many of which are based on levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided 3.9 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is an impressive metric which typically leads to higher quality care. Finally, we also looked at nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these data points as good indicators of the quality of nursing care offered, since better care tends to reduce these problems.
