Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a great overall score, this nursing home also received an A+ inspection rating. This grade is based on its recent government inspections. An A+ in this category is one of the highest complements we can pay to a nursing home. Inspection scores account for several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this area generally have few severe deficiencies. 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

To add to its top-shelf accomplishments in other areas, we gave this nursing home a score of A- for our long-term care rating. For long-term care residents, the primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. On the whole this looks like a solid option for long-term care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility was given an impressive short-term care grade as well. We awarded it one of our higher scores in that category with a score of B+. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

In our final area, this nursing home also was given a first-rate nursing grade, with a grade of B+. This finished off a very impressive profile. There are quite a few criteria within this category. Most of these factors are tied to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed certain nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these statistics as good indicators of the quality of nursing care offered, since better care tends to reduce these problems.
