Grade: A

One of the reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it earned a very impressive inspection grade. Inspections turned out to be its best category. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A. Arguably the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. We weren't able to locate deficiency counts for this nursing home. Without all of the deficiency related data for this nursing home, it was difficult to grade it in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also received a very impressive nursing grade. In fact, this turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A. Nursing scores are primarily tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 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 nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also received a very impressive short-term care grade. In fact, this turned out to be its third most impressive category grade. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of A-. In forming these short-term care ratings, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to formulate a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The final category we assessed is this nursing home's poorest area. However, even its worst category would actually be a highlight for many nursing homes. We gave it a favorable grade of B for our long-term care category. Facilities that excel in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 98.61878 percent of its patients. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
