Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a strong nursing home overall, it also received A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections are virtually perfect. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some are quite minor. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

To add to its elite performance in other areas, we awarded this facility a grade of A for its short-term care grade. Our short-term care ratings are likely most critical for residents needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not only nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who returned home from this facility. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its impressive resume, this nursing home also excelled in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. We analyzed the licensure of nurses working for the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of hours the nurses worked with patients, in determining our score in this category. This nursing home averages 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility 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 generally be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of moving a patient more frequently.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The final area we scored was long-term care. In this area, we gave this nursing home a favorable grade of B. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care tend to provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 95.87302 percent of its patients, which is better than most nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
