Facility Inspections

Grade: A

One of the many reasons this ended up being a quality nursing home is that it received a very impressive grade in inspections. Inspections ended up being its best category. In this area, we gave this facility an A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some are quite minor. This place was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to patient safety or health. A few relatively minor dings aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its top-shelf resume, this facility also excelled in our short-term care category. In fact, it received a score of A for that category. Short-term care grades are typically used to grade a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to have quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have higher levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Among its many impressive grades, this facility received an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A- in that category. When determining a nursing home's nursing grade, we consider the amount of time nurses are with residents as well as the levels of training of the nurses. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility 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 frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we graded was long-term care. We gave this facility a decent score in that area, with a B-. While this was not as strong as many of this nursing home's other grades, it is still not a major area of concern. Long-term care grades are pivotal for people needing non-healthcare services such as personal care. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 95.87629 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. This place also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
