Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall score, we gave this nursing home an A for our inspections rating. Inspection scores account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this area generally have few severe deficiencies. This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to create an imminent risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Nursing scores are largely associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as employing a policy of moving residents at least once a day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also was strong in the category of long-term care, where it received a grade of A-. Not many nursing homes performed better in this area. Facilities that excel in this category tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 98.14242 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is much higher than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

The final area we rated was short-term care, where this facility received a grade of B+. This completed a very strong profile. Only a select few nursing homes earned a B+ or better in every category. Our short-term care grades are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final measure we assessed in this category is the number of residents who returned home from the nursing home. We found that 5.7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
