Facility Inspections

Grade: A

We also would like to emphasize that this facility has received nearly flawless health inspections recently. We awarded them an A in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively insignificant. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its impressive resume, this nursing home also excelled in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. Our nursing grade is largely tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This particular facility provided 4.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This was one of the more impressive figures we found. In addition, we found that a significant portion of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. These are both really impressive figures. On top of providing impressive levels of nursing care, this facility also excelled in the quality measures we looked at. It performed as well as any facility in the country in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This facility also was given a dominant short-term care score. Indeed, this turned out to be this facility's third strongest category grade. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of A. Our short-term care grades are crucial for people needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a vast range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. This place is the gold standard in terms of skilled nursing staffing. In fact, it offered roughly 50% more physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than a typical facility. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who returned home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we graded is long-term care. This nursing home was awarded a favorable long-term care score in our assessment, with a B-. Although this is not as good as many of its other grades, this is nevertheless a respectable rating for this category. Long-term care grades are important for patients in need of non-healthcare services such as personal care. One of the statistics we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccines. It doesn't look like this facility submitted information on its vaccination levels. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
