Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a quality nursing home overall, this place really excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A+. Few nursing homes fared better in this area. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. 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. This is what you like to see on an inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. This turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an B+. When determining a facility's nursing score, we assess the quantity of hours nurses are caring for residents as well as the skill levels of those nurses. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility also received an impressive short-term care grade. In fact, we gave it an above average score of B in this category. In our short-term care rating, we seek to craft a valuable measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze a facility's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients that eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Moving on to the final area, this nursing home was given a grade of C in long-term care, which is a decent grade. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 95.045044 percent of its residents, which is better than the vast majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
