Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of performing well overall, this nursing home earned a nearly flawless inspection report. Consequently, it received one of our highest grades in that category with an A. Our inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this area typically have few severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also was awarded a strong short-term care score. Indeed, this turned out to be this nursing home's second most impressive category score. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of A-. In determining our short-term care ratings, we look at a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. This area is typically a fair assessment of a nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility 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. The final measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

This facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. The nursing score assesses many subcategories, most of which are based on quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Moving on to the fourth category, this nursing home also performed admirably in the long-term care category. We gave it a grade of B+ in that area. This completed a first-rate report card. For patients in need of a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 77.34806 percent of its residents. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, at least this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
