Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ nursing grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. In calculating our nursing grades, we factor in both nursing hours and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This particular nursing home provided 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

The next category we looked at was inspections, where this facility also received an A+ grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Inspection scores account for several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this category generally have few of these severe deficiencies. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

An additional strength for this nursing home is long-term care, where it received an A+ rating. This is just about as elite as it gets in this category. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care typically provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. One of the statistics we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a reliable method to avoid unnecessary deaths for the senior population. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In the last category we scored, this nursing home was awarded an impressive grade grade of A in our short-term care category. With this grade, the nursing home finished off a straight A profile. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
