Facility Inspections

Grade: A+

On top of being a strong nursing home overall, it also earned A+ health inspections recently. Its inspections were virtually perfect. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite insignificant. This nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to create an immediate risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also wanted to alert you to the fact that this nursing home was awarded a superb score of A- in our long-term care category. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 93.693695 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is a bit less than we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable figure. Fortunately, this place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 1.09 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a much lower hospitalization rate than the majority of nursing homes.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also received a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A-. Nursing ratings are based in large part on nurse staffing levels. This nursing home offers 3.7 hours of nursing care per patient daily, of which more than one hour of those were provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly skilled levels of nurses. In determining our nursing ratings, we add more weight to hours performed by registered nurses. Lastly, we also looked at certain nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these datapoints as predictive measures of the quality of nursing care offered, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next category we scored was short-term care, where this facility received a B. While this proved to be its weakest category grade, this is still a good score. In determining our short-term care scores, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to devise a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. When we assessed this facility's nursing hours, we found it offered more care from registered nurses than most nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return home from this facility. This place performed decently in this area, with 47.8 percent of its patients returning home.
