Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of performing well in its overall grade, this nursing home performed at an even higher level in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Among this facility's other strengths is its elite nursing grade. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of A-. Our nursing rating consists of quite a few datapoints, but the most important consideration is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility is also above average in the area of short-term care, where it was awarded a grade of B. It performed more favorably than most facilities in this category. Short-term care scores are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 4.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next category we assessed turned out to be this nursing home's worst category. Nevertheless, even in its weakest link we still awarded it an acceptable grade of C for our long-term care category. In computing our long-term care scores, we size up the personal care offered to a facility's patients. After considering the volume of nursing care, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to find that this nursing home vaccinates 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
