Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being an elite facility overall, this nursing home also performed well in the area of inspections, where it earned an A+. Very few facilities fared this well in this category. Inspection scores account for several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this category tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. This facility was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies an immediate risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Compounding its dominant assessments in other areas, we gave this facility a score of A- for its long-term care score. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 93.29269 percent of its residents. This is slightly below what we were hoping for but still a decent figure. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Grade: A-minus

This facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. We looked at the skill-level of nurses at the facility, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses spent with residents, in computing our score in this area. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as having a protocol of moving a resident more often.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

The last area we analyzed was short-term care, where this nursing home was given a grade of B+. This wrapped up an elite profile. Few nursing homes received a B+ or better in every single category. Short-term care scores are crucial for people needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more skilled nursing services. This includes a wide range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. We were not able to locate registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of residents that ultimately returned home from the nursing home.
