Facility Inspections

Grade: A

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility has earned nearly flawless health inspections recently. We gave them an A in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively minor. This particular nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. 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 draw your attention to the fact that this facility received an impressive score of A- in our long-term care category. Facilities that do well in long-term care tend to provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. Once we concluded our assessment of the amount of nursing care, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 94.8052 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is too frequently a dangerous ailment for nursing home residents so we like it when a nursing home doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

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. In computing our nursing grades, we analyze both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of the nurses. This particular nursing home provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In our last category, this nursing home also was given a first-rate short-term care grade, with a B+. This wrapped up an elite profile. In calculating these short-term care scores, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to devise a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. We were not able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we considered the number of residents that ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
