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. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. 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. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

To complement its elite achievements in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our short-term care rating. Our short-term care grades are vital for prospective residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing. This means a vast scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.1 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its strong resume, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with a grade of A-. When computing our nursing ratings, we weigh both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.5 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 place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last category we looked at is long-term care. This facility was awarded a strong long-term care score in our assessment, with a C. Although this was not quite as good as many of its other scores, this is nevertheless an acceptable score in that category. Long-term care grades focus on a nursing home's personal care instead of the highly skilled therapy and healthcare services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
