Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to being a first rate facility overall, this place also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned a grade of A. Few facilities performed better in this area. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. 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.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its impressive resume, this nursing home also excelled in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category. Our nursing score analyzes the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of skill of those nurses and the number of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides an impressive 4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. Finally, this facility was also above average in each of the major quality measures we assessed in this category. It performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this nursing home also was given favorable long-term care scores in our assessment. In fact, we awarded it one of our higher grades in that area, with a score of B+. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in this category typically provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure patients are well cared for. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 99.32886 percent of its patients. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents healthy. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.56 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The last area we analyzed was short-term care. We awarded this facility one of our higher grades in this category, with a B. Although this is not as favorable as many of this facility's other grades, it is nevertheless a perfectly acceptable score. Short-term care scores are important for patients in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a broad scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. We were pleased to find that this nursing home employs both registered nurses and physical therapists. The same can't be said for all nursing homes. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to return home from the facility. We found that it fared better than most nursing homes in this area with 54.4 percent of its patients returning home. With most facilities, less than half of their short-stay patients ever return home.
