Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be relatively minor. This nursing home was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to create an imminent 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-plus

We also gave this nursing home a score of A+ for its long-term care grade. Facilities that do well in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. After assessing the impressive nursing care provided by this facility, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is far higher than the majority of nursing homes. The last statistic we looked at was its hospitalization rate. We found that this place had 2.47 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also received a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A. Our nursing grade features numerous subcategories. The most important one is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This facility offers extremely high levels of nursing care, averaging 4.1 hours per resident on a daily basis. This is more nursing care than nearly any other facility offers. Finally, this nursing home also excelled in several quality measures we assessed. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the nation in this category. This is typically an indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls. Many pressure ulcers can be avoided by offering better nursing care and a system of turning residents more frequently.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Switching gears to the last category, this nursing home also performed well in the short-term care category. We gave it an A- in that area. This completed a straight A report card. Short-term care scores are crucial for residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes a vast scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. One of this nursing home's strengths is physical therapy hours. We found that it offers more hours with physical therapists to its residents than most facilities. The final item we assessed in this area is the number of patients that returned home from the facility. We found that it fared better than most facilities in this area with 55 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, at most facilities, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.
