Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of being a first rate nursing home overall, it also excelled in inspections, where it received an A. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this area tend to have 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

Adding to its top-shelf profile, this nursing home also received a dominant short-term care score, with a grade of A. Short-term care grades are often employed to assess a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally must feature better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 5.4 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We also want to emphasize the fact that this facility received a top-shelf score of A in our long-term care category. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 72.66881 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which happens to be a bit below what we anticipated but still a decent percentage. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Grade: A-minus

In the last category we scored, this facility was awarded an impressive grade grade of A- in our nursing category. With this score, the facility rounded out a straight A profile.

This is often a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
