Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This nursing home received a quality overall score as described above, but we especially want to point out its nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We gave them an A in this category. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this category usually have few severe deficiencies. 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. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Contributing to this facility's list of achievements, it also was given a fine short-term care score. We awarded them a strong grade of A- in this area. Short-term care scores are important for people requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more skilled nursing. This means a broad range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final statistic we looked at in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 5.4 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our nursing grade. Nursing ratings are based largely on quality and quantity of nursing care. This facility provided 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 nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final area we looked at is this nursing home's weakest area. Nevertheless, even in its worst category we still gave it a respectable grade of C in long-term care. Long-term care scores are essential for prospective residents seeking non-healthcare services such as personal care. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home administered the vaccine to 99.3007 percent of its residents, which is a very respectable statistic. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
