Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this nursing home has received near flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

This facility was given quality marks in the category of short-term care. For this reason, it received one of our best grades in that category with a grade of A+. In crafting our short-term care scores, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to create a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final item we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who returned home from the nursing home. We found that 7.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Moving on our third area, we gave this nursing home a grade of A for its long-term care grade. This is a very strong rating. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is much higher than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home 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 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Switching gears to the fourth area, this facility was awarded a highly favorable nursing rating. We gave it an A in that category, giving this facility straight A's. Nursing ratings are based largely on quantity of nursing care available. This facility provided 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures 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 facility the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of turning a patient at least once a day.
