Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a great facility overall, it also received A+ government inspections recently. Its inspections were nearly flawless. Inspection scores account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category generally have few severe deficiencies. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. Nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this facility an A. When determining a facility's nursing rating, we weigh the number of hours nurses commit to residents and the level of skill of the nurses. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of turning a resident even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

The third area we looked at was long-term care. Contributing to its strong profile, this nursing home also performed well in that category. In fact, it received a of A- for that area. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. One of the factors we considered after nursing hours was vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 98.99497 percent of its residents. This is a proven method to minimize unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the elderly population. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The final category we assessed was short-term care, where this facility was awarded a grade of B. This actually turned out to be this facility's worst area. A facility is doing something right when their lowest score still beats out most facilities. Short-term care scores are important for individuals requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This means a vast scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed 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.
