Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a great nursing home overall, it also received A+ health inspections recently. Its inspections were nearly perfect. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively minor. We were not able to find deficiency counts for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition, this facility received high marks in the area of nursing. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A+. When computing our nursing scores, we look at both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of those nurses. This facility provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as employing a system of moving patients at least once a day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

The third area we assessed was short-term care. This facility excelled in our short-term care rating as well. We gave them an impressive score of A+ in this category. With our short-term care category, we strive to forge a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess a nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 6.3 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In the final category we graded, this facility was awarded a very favorable grade of A in our long-term care category. With this grade, the nursing home completed a straight A report card. Facilities that receive this type of score in long-term care typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure residents are well cared for. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients healthy. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
