Facility Inspections

Grade: A

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is it received a very impressive grade in inspections. Inspections turned out to be its best category. In this area, we awarded this facility an A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively insignificant. While this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple relatively minor dings aren't something to panic about.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its first-rate achievements in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a score of A for our short-term care rating. In forming these short-term care ratings, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to create a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. One of this nursing home's strength is that it offers more hours of care from registered nurses to its residents. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return home from this facility. This place outperformed the overwhelming majority of nursing homes in the nation with 64.6 percent of its patients returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its strong resume, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with a grade of A-. In determining a facility's nursing rating, we assess the number of hours nurses are seeing patients and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is higher than what is offered by most places. Finally, this place also performed well in several of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In terms of the number of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, this place performed better than the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we scored is long-term care. This nursing home received a strong long-term care grade this year, with a B-. While this isn't as good as several of its other grades, this remains a respectable rating in that area. Our long-term care scores are important for individuals in need of personal care. After looking at the impressive nursing hours provided by this facility, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is higher than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
