Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to point out the fact that this facility has received near flawless government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A+ in this category. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this area most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This place received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to create an immediate risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. Nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of A. Our nursing grade assesses the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages 0.5 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 facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Turning our next area, this facility was given first-rate long-term care grade. In fact, it received a grade of A in this area. When facilities receive this type of grade in long-term care it is usually a good sign for resident care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses and aids. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia tragically can be a deadly ailment for nursing home residents so we like it when a nursing home doesn't leave this to chance. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

In the last category we looked at, this facility was given an impressive grade grade of A- in our short-term care category. With this score, the nursing home rounded out a straight A report card. Short-term care grades are based on the facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
