Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a strong overall score, this nursing home received an A+ inspection score. This is based on its recent government inspections. An A+ in this area is one of the best complements we can offer a nursing home. Inspection scores account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this area usually have very few severe deficiencies. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

An additional reason we rated this facility so highly is that it was awarded an A+ long-term care score. This is just about as good as it gets in this area. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is far higher than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also awarded this facility a of A+ for its short-term care grade. Short-term care grades are typically used to measure a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation In order to have highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

In our last category, this nursing home also received an A+ for its nursing score, finishing off a clean sweep of A+'s in each of our categories. The nursing category analyzes many data points, most of which are associated with nursing hours. This nursing home provides 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a system of moving a resident more frequently.
