Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Our inspection grades account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this area typically have very few severe deficiencies. This facility was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to resident health or safety. A few minor dings aren't necessarily something to panic about.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Contributing to its strong resume, this facility also excelled in our short-term care area. In fact, we gave it a score of A for the area. Our short-term care scores are presumably more critical for those in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing. This includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. It does not look like this nursing home provided registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Among its many impressive grades, this facility received an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A in that category. Our nursing grade looks at the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of skill of those nurses and the number of hours spent with residents. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In the last category we graded, this nursing home was given a very strong grade of B+ in our long-term care category. With this grade, the nursing home completed a first-rate profile. When nursing homes receive this type of score in long-term care it is a good sign for patient care and indicates that the facility is well-staffed with nurses aids. Once we concluded our assessment of the amount of nursing care, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 97.87234 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is often a dangerous ailment for nursing home residents so we prefer when a facility does not leave this to chance. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
