Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to point out that this facility has received near flawless inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A+ in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. 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

Contributing to its high-end resume, this facility also received an excellent long-term care grade, with a grade of A-. Facilities that receive this kind of score in long-term care tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure patients are well cared for. Once we concluded our assessment of the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 98.73418 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is often a life or death health condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a facility does not leave this to chance. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Moving on our next area, this nursing home was awarded first-rate short-term care grade. In fact, it received a score of A- in this area. Our short-term care grade is typically employed to grade a facility's performance with rehabilitation To offer highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 6.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

The final area we assessed is nursing. We awarded this nursing home one of our better scores in this area, with a grade of B. Although this isn't as strong as many of this facility's other scores, it is nevertheless a perfectly acceptable grade. The nursing grade consists of many factors, most of which are based on nursing hours. This nursing home averages 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 facility 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 often be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
