Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category usually have very few severe deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Contributing to its superb profile, this facility also excelled in our long-term care category. In fact, we gave it a grade of A for the area. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 88.55141 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which happens to be slightly less than we were hoping for but still a respectable percentage. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, we were pleased to find facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Switching gears to our fourth category, this facility also performed well in our short-term care category. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that area. This topped off truly elite report card. In our short-term care grade, we strive to create a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze a facility's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.7 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
