In addition to being a strong nursing home overall, it also earned A+ health inspections recently. Its inspections are virtually flawless. Inspection grades weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area generally 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 was elite in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a score of A. Only a select group of facilities fared better in this category. In calculating these short-term care grades, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to create a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

The third area we assessed was long-term care. This facility received an above average long-term care score, with a grade of B+ in this area. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 92.36641 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is a few points less than we expected but still a respectable percentage. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The final area we scored was nursing. In this category, we gave this nursing home a solid grade of C. This proved to be this nursing home's weakest category. Nursing ratings are largely tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared with most facilities. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures. Although this facility got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of these quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it performed well in this statistic. This can be an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as having a policy of turning a patient more often.
