Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this area tend to have very few severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This facility also performed well in the area of short-term care, where it received a score of A. Few nursing homes fared better in this category. Our short-term care grades are likely more meaningful for folks requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically mandates more skilled nursing. This includes not just nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. We were not able to find information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 7.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Building on its remarkable assessment, this facility also received a dominant long-term care score, with a grade of A-. For patients looking for a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. It doesn't look like this facility submitted information on its vaccination levels. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

In our last category, we gave this facility a A+ for its nursing grade. This wrapped up a first-rate report card. Our nursing grade is primarily based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed certain nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these areas as good indicators of the caliber of nursing care being provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.
