Facility Inspections

Jan 20: A+Mar 20: A+Apr 20: A+May 20: A+Jun 20: A+Jul 20: A+Aug 20: A+

In addition to being a first rate facility overall, this facility also performed well in our inspections category, where it received a grade of A+. Very few nursing homes fared as well in this category. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate deficiency data for this facility. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Jan 20: A-Mar 20: A-Apr 20: AMay 20: AJun 20: AJul 20: AAug 20: A-

To add to its top-shelf performance in other areas, we awarded this facility a grade of A- for its long-term care score. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. Clearly we were impressed with what we found for this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Jan 20: BMar 20: BApr 20: B+May 20: B+Jun 20: B+Jul 20: B+Aug 20: B+

Turning to an additional strength for this nursing home, we awarded them one of our more positive scores in our short-term care category as well, with a grade of B+. Short-term care grades are typically used to judge a nursing home's rehabilitation services To offer good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must offer higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This facility is the gold standard when it comes to skilled nursing staffing. It offered roughly 1.5 times as many physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Jan 20: B+Mar 20: B+Apr 20: B+May 20: B+Jun 20: B+Jul 20: B+Aug 20: B+

Switching gears to the fourth category, this facility also performed admirably in the nursing category. We gave it a B+ in this area. This topped off a first-rate profile. The nursing rating consists of a handful of factors, many of which are based on levels of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 8.5 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This was one of the more impressive totals we found. In addition, we found that a significant portion of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. These are both really impressive figures. In addition to providing impressive levels of nursing care, this place also excelled in the quality measures we assessed. It performed as well as any nursing home in the state in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
