Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a great overall grade, this facility also received A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections were virtually flawless. Inspection ratings account for several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this area usually have very few severe deficiencies. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate deficiency counts for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its elite accomplishments in other areas, we gave this nursing home a grade of A- for our long-term care rating. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care typically provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients out of the hospital. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility also was given a favorable short-term care score. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this category. In the area of short-term care, we seek to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. We were not able to track down registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we looked at was nursing. We gave this facility a solid score in this category, with a B-. While this isn't as dominant as a few of its other grades, it is nevertheless nothing to be ashamed of. In calculating a nursing home's nursing score, we weigh the amount of time nurses commit to patients as well as the level of skill of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, while this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in some of our quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this metric.
