Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of performing well in its overall grade, this facility 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. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this category typically have very few severe deficiencies. This place was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to be an immediate risk to resident safety or health. A couple minor dings aren't necessarily something to panic about.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This facility truly excelled in the area of short-term care, where it received a grade of A. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. Short-term care scores are based on the nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a broad range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final statistic we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B. Nursing scores are heavily correlated with quality and quantity of nursing care. This nursing home provides 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 place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we looked at is long-term care, which was this nursing home's least impressive area. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F in this category, which is obviously a bit of a disappointment. For prospective residents looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 99.30556 percent of its residents, which is more than the average nursing home. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.

Minimizes Serious Falls

Grade: C

In The Village, 3.69% of Patients had Serious Falls

This is the percent of residents that sustained a major fall. Falls resulting in severe injuries are routinely linked to lower levels of patient supervision. Better nursing protocols minimizes the number of major falls sustained by residents in a nursing home.

In The Village, 3.09% of Patients had UTIs

This tells you the percent of residents that suffered from a urinary tract infection. Urinary tract infections are considered to be a measure of nursing care at a nursing home.

In The Village, 16.77% of Patients use Anti-Psychotic Medication

This is the percent of patients who were prescribed antipsychotic drugs. While antipsychotic drugs may be vital to many patients, it is important to make sure these medications are being used only where medically required.
