Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with a favorable overall score, we awarded this facility an A+ for our inspections rating. Our inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this category typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. While this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient 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

We also wanted to alert you to the fact that this facility was given an elite score of A in our short-term care category. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This score is often a fair assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also was elite in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a score of A. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. Once we assessed the volume of nursing care, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia tragically can be a life or death health condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a facility doesn't leave this to chance. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

In our final area, we awarded this facility a grade of A+ for its nursing grade. This finished off an elite report card. In computing our nursing ratings, we look at both staffing levels and the training levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
