Facility Inspections

Grade: A

We also wanted to emphasize that this nursing home has earned excellent health inspections in recent years. We gave them an A in this category. Inspection scores account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area generally have few of these severe deficiencies. 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its elite profile, this facility also excelled in our short-term care area. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- in that area. Our short-term care grade is often employed to judge a facility's rehabilitation services. To provide good rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature better levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final metric we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 6.8 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also was superb in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a score of A-. Very few facilities fared better in this area. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in this category typically provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure patients are well cared for. One of the criteria we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 87.434555 percent of its residents. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, at least this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to our last category, this nursing home also performed admirably in our nursing category. We awarded it a grade of B+ for that category. This rounded out a very strong profile. Our nursing rating weighs a variety of subcategories. The most heavily weighted variable is the amount of time nurses spend with patients. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
