Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of performing well overall, this facility also received nearly flawless government inspections. As a result, it earned one of our highest grades in that area with an A+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are quite minor. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down deficiency data for this facility. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

On the list of its many impressive scores, this nursing home received an excellent short-term care score. In fact, we gave it a score of A- in that category. In forming our short-term care ratings, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to devise a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also received a favorable long-term care score. In fact, we gave it an above average score of B+ in this category. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccinations. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 97.70992 percent of its residents. This is a great way to minimize unnecessary hospitalizations for the nursing home population. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

The next category we analyzed is nursing. We awarded this nursing home one of our more favorable grades in this category, with a grade of B. Although this is not as strong as many of this nursing home's other scores, it is nevertheless an excellent grade. The nursing category includes several subcategories, most of which are tied to nursing hours. This nursing home provides 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 facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
