Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Inspection ratings are tied to many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this area typically have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also performed well in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of A-. Not many nursing homes performed better in this area. In the category of short-term care, we strive to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities 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 final measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. When computing our nursing ratings, we factor in both staffing levels and the skill levels of those nurses. This facility provided 0.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next category we assessed is long-term care, where this facility received a grade of B. Although this turned out to be its worst category score, this is nevertheless an impressive grade. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in this category typically provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure patients are kept in good health. One of the data points we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 64.87455 percent of its patients. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
