Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to a phenomenal overall grade, this facility also received A+ nursing grade. Our nursing grade looks at the facility's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of skill of the nurses as well as the number of hours spent with patients. This facility provided 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

This facility has also received near flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We also want to note the fact that this facility received a high-end grade of A in our long-term care area. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it typically means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is far higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

The final area we graded is short-term care, where this nursing home was given an A. This finished off an elite profile. Not many nursing homes received an A- or better in every category. Our short-term care ratings are presumably more critical for those in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients that returned home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
