Facility Inspections

Grade: A+

On top of receiving a strong overall score, this nursing home earned an A+ inspection score. This grade is based on its recent government inspections. An A+ in this area is one of the best complements we can pay to a facility. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home also received an A+ for its nursing grade. We looked at the skill-level of nurses employed by the facility, as well as the quantity of hours the nurses were with patients, in computing our grade in this area. This particular nursing home provided 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 facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This facility also received a fine short-term care score. This actually is this facility's third best category score. In that category, we awarded this facility a score of A. Short-term care ratings are crucial for patients needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a vast range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.1 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In our final area, this facility also was given an excellent long-term care score, with an A. This topped off a straight A report card. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it generally means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
