Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a first rate nursing home overall, this nursing home excelled in our inspections category, where it earned a grade of A+. Very few places fared this well in this area. Our inspection scores are tied to many datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that score well in this category have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. 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-plus

This facility also was given an A+ for its short-term care score. Our short-term care grades are likely more meaningful for patients in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last measure we looked at in this area is the number of residents that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that 6.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also was awarded a impressive long-term care score. In fact, this turned out to be this facility's third most impressive category grade. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of A. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy. 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 figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Switching gears to the final area, this facility was awarded a strong nursing score. In fact, we gave it an A- in this area, rounding out a straight A profile. The nursing grade is based on numerous subcategories. The most important factor is the number of hours nurses spent with residents. This particular nursing home provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
