Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a great nursing home overall, it also earned A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections are nearly flawless. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. 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. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility received high grades in the area of nursing as well. In fact, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A-. Nursing grades are mostly tied to the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home 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 frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Additionally, this nursing home also was given favorable short-term care scores in our assessment. Indeed, we gave them one of our stronger scores in that category, with a score of B. In computing our short-term care scores, we assess the facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. This score is often a fair measure of a facility's rehabilitation. 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, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that returned home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Switching gears to our fourth area, this nursing home was given an acceptable long-term care rating. Even though this isn't nearly as elite as a few of its other scores, this is really not a terrible score. In computing our long-term care scores, we analyze the personal care received by the facility's residents. One of the data points we considered after nursing hours is vaccines. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to just 78.861786 percent of its residents. On a more positive note, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
