Facility Inspections

Grade: A

One of the reasons this ended up being a great nursing home is it received a very impressive inspection grade. Inspections ended up being its best category. In that category, we gave this nursing home an A. Inspection grades weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area typically have few of these severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This tells you the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also performed well in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of A. Very few nursing homes fared better in this area. Facilities that do well in long-term care tend to provide patients with closer supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. One of the factors we considered after nursing hours is vaccines. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. This is a proven method to avoid unnecessary deaths for the senior population. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B. There are a number of factors within this area. Many of these datapoints relate to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place 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 generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Turning to the last area, this facility was awarded an extremely favorable short-term care grade. Although this isn't nearly as dominant as several of its other scores, this is nevertheless one of our more impressive scores we offer. Our short-term care grades are important for patients needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires additional highly-skilled nursing. This means a wide scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this nursing home provided registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The last datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 5.3 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.
