Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a great overall grade, this facility also received A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections were virtually flawless. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite insignificant. 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-minus

To complement its strong accomplishments in other areas, we gave this nursing home a score of A- for its short-term care grade. Short-term care grades are typically employed to measure a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to provide quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 4.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also was superb in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of A-. Only a select group of facilities received a better grade in this area. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in long-term care typically provide consistent around the clock care to ensure residents are kept in good health. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients out of the hospital. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

The next category we analyzed was nursing. In that area, we gave this facility a favorable grade of B. In determining our nursing ratings, we look at both nursing hours and the training levels of those nurses. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of moving a resident more often.
