Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively minor. Unfortunately, it does not appear that we were able to find 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

To complement its elite achievements in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for its long-term care grade. In a long-term care setting, the primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. Clearly we were impressed with our findings for this area.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Turning the page to our next category, this nursing home received a top-shelf short-term care score. In fact, we gave it a grade of A- in that area. Our short-term care ratings are thought to be most meaningful for patients in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. This includes not merely nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

In the final category we scored, this nursing home was given an impressive grade grade of B+ in our nursing category. With this score, the facility wrapped up a first-rate profile. Our nursing grade analyzes the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of training of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with patients. This facility provided 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
