Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite minor. 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.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home also received an A+ nursing grade, making it one of the few nursing homes to receive multiple A+ category grades. Our nursing grade is primarily associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as employing a policy of moving residents more often.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

The third area we assessed was long-term care. This facility performed remarkably in our long-term care rating as well. We gave them a dominant score of A+ in this category. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care typically are well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 96.39639 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents healthy. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

The fourth area we looked at was short-term care, where this nursing home was given a grade of A-. This wrapped up a very favorable report card. Few facilities earned an A- or higher in all four categories. Short-term care ratings are crucial for residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of skilled nursing. This means a wide range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
