Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its great overall score, we gave this facility an A for inspections. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite insignificant. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also was given a fine long-term care score. Indeed, this turned out to be this nursing home's second strongest category score. In that category, this facility received a grade of A-. For residents seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 46.246246 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is a few points lower than we were hoping for but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

The next category we looked at was short-term care. Adding to its superb profile, this facility also performed well in that category. In fact, it received a grade of of A- for the category. Short-term care grades are typically employed to grade a facility's performance with rehabilitation To have highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

In the last category we assessed, this facility was given a very strong grade of A- in our nursing category. With this grade, the facility finished off a straight A profile. The nursing score weighs a handful of data points, however, the main consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. 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 facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
