Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to point out the fact that this nursing home earned near flawless government inspections recently. We gave them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite minor. While this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This tells you the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its elite performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a score of A for its short-term care score. In the category of short-term care, we strive to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final item we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 7.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Our nursing category consists of many factors, many of which are based on quantities of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 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 facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The last area we graded is long-term care, in which this nursing home was given a B. Believe it or not, this ended up being this nursing home's least impressive category. A facility is doing something right when their weakest score still is better than most other nursing homes. Facilities that do well in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is often a deadly condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a facility does not roll the dice on this issue. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
