Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

On top of being a first rate nursing home overall, this place also performed well in the area of inspections, where it received an A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with better grades in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This tells you the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor dings aren't something to panic about.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Contributing to its first-rate resume, this facility also excelled in our long-term care category. In fact, we gave it a grade of A- for that area. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in long-term care tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure residents are kept in good health. After considering the amount of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 94.22572 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia tragically can be a dangerous health condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a facility does not take any chances. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Moving on our next area, we gave this nursing home a grade of A- for our short-term care rating. This is a very strong grade. Our short-term care grades are probably more important for folks in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional skilled nursing. This includes not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last metric we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 5.7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

In our final category, this nursing home also received an impressive nursing rating, with a grade of B+. This finished off a very impressive profile. Our nursing rating assesses the facility's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of skill of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.4 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 nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
