Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To pair with its strong overall score, we awarded this nursing home an A+ for our inspections rating. Arguably the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also excelled in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of A. Only a select group of nursing homes fared better in this category. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients out of the hospital. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home was awarded a strong short-term care score as well. We gave it one of our better grades in that category with a score of B+. Short-term care ratings are meaningful for prospective residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a wide spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.7 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

In the final category we graded, this nursing home was awarded an impressive grade grade of B+ in our nursing category. With this grade, the nursing home completed a first-rate profile. The nursing grade consists of quite a few factors, however, the primary consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
