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. Inspection ratings are based on many datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that score well in this category tend to have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down deficiency counts for this nursing home. We would like to have more information about this nursing home. Without having deficiency related data, it is challenging to really evaluate this nursing home in terms of this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Contributing to its top-shelf resume, this nursing home also excelled in our short-term care area. In fact, we awarded it a score of A- for the area. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we size up the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This category is generally a meaningful measure of a facility's rehabilitation. We weren't able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 6.7 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to another strength for this nursing home, we gave them one of our more positive grades in our long-term care category as well, with a grade of B+. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is much higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

The last area we scored was nursing, in which this nursing home was awarded a grade of B. This actually ended up being this nursing home's weakest area. A facility could be doing a lot worse when it's weakest score still outperforms most nursing homes. In computing a nursing home's nursing rating, we look at the number of hours nurses are with residents as well as the skill levels of those nurses. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 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.
