Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with a favorable overall grade, we gave this facility an A+ for our inspection category. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this area generally have few severe deficiencies. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also was superb in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of A-. Only a select group of facilities performed better in this category. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care typically provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. Once we finished looking at the quantity of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 94.23729 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia tragically can be a dangerous condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a facility doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

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. There are a variety of datapoints within this grade. Many of these datapoints relate to staffing levels. This facility provided 3.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Turning to the last category, this nursing home received an acceptable short-term care rating. Even though this isn't nearly as dominant as several of its other scores, this is truly not the end of the world. In crafting our short-term care ratings, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to devise a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. This nursing home boosted its score in this category by offering more than 50% more physical therapy hours to its residents than the average facility. The last measure we considered in this category is the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. It performed better than most nursing homes in this metric with 49.3 percent of its residents returning home. With most facilities, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.
