Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this place turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it earned an A+ in our inspections category. This is just about as good as it gets in this critical area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some are 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Contributing to its first-rate profile, this facility also excelled in our short-term care area. In fact, it received a grade of A- in the category. Our short-term care grade is commonly employed to assess a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature better levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 6.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also performed well in the area of long-term care, where it received a score of A-. Very few facilities performed better in this category. When nursing homes receive this type of score in long-term care it is typically a good sign for patient care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients, which is much higher than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Turning to the fourth category, this facility received an acceptable nursing grade. While this wasn't as dominant as several of its other grades, this is still not a terrible score. Our nursing rating is based on numerous factors. The most important one is the number of hours nurses spend with patients. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a low total compared with most other facilities. Lastly, nursing ratings also consider quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this facility performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often an indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses to assist its patients.
