Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this ended up being a great nursing home is it received an A+ inspection grade. This is just about as good as it gets in this area. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This facility received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to be an imminent 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

We also want to alert you to the fact that this facility was given a first-rate grade of A in our long-term care area. Facilities that excel in this category tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. After we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 99.74094 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly is often a dangerous health condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a nursing home does not roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

The next category we analyzed was short-term care. Contributing to its first-rate profile, this nursing home also excelled in this area. In fact, it received a of A- in the category. In calculating these short-term care ratings, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to formulate a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final measure we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

In the final category we assessed, this facility received an impressive grade grade of A- in our nursing category. With this score, the nursing home completed a straight A report card. Nursing scores are primarily based on a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
