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. Our inspection scores weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this category typically have few severe deficiencies. This place received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies an immediate threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also was given a fine short-term care score. Indeed, this ended up being this nursing home's second strongest category grade. In that category, we awarded this facility a score of A-. In determining these short-term care grades, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to create a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last item we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also was superb in the category of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of A-. Very few facilities fared better in this area. Facilities that do well in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 97.674416 percent of its patients, which is far higher than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

The next category we assessed was nursing. In that area, we gave this nursing home an above average grade of B. In calculating our nursing ratings, we weigh both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
