Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of performing well overall, this nursing home also received nearly flawless government inspections. As a result, it received one of our best scores in that area with an A+. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this place had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Among its many impressive scores, this nursing home received an excellent nursing score. We gave it an B+ in that category. Our nursing grade is primarily based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at 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 place the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by having a system of moving residents more often.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Turning to our next category, this facility also received a grade of B for its long-term care rating. This is a well above average score in this category. Facilities that excel in this category tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents. After considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 98.907104 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients out of the hospital. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next category we looked at was short-term care. This nursing home received a favorable short-term care rating in our assessment, with a B. This facility really doesn't have any weak links. Our short-term care grades are probably more important for residents in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 5.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
