Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this facility an A for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection grades. One critical factor is 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 end up being relatively minor. 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also wanted to alert you to the fact that this nursing home received a first-rate grade of A- in our short-term care category. In computing our short-term care scores, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to formulate a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. We weren't able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The last metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 5.7 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also excelled in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a score of A-. Few nursing homes fared better in this category. For residents looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. After we finished assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 88.549614 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, we were pleased to find nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

In our final area, this nursing home also received an impressive nursing rating, with a B+. This rounded out a very favorable profile. When calculating our nursing ratings, we look at both nursing hours and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by having a system of moving residents more often.
