Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ nursing grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. Nursing ratings are heavily correlated with levels of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as employing a system of turning patients at least once a day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition, this nursing home was given elite marks in the area of long-term care. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in that category with a score of A+. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. One of the statistics we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a proven method to avoid unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the aged 65 and up population. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This facility has earned near flawless government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this area. Inspection scores account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this category usually have very few severe deficiencies. This place was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to be an immediate 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

In the last category we scored, this nursing home was given a very favorable grade of A in our short-term care category. With this score, the facility completed a straight A profile. Our short-term care grades are probably more critical for patients in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. This means not merely nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last item we looked at in this category is the number of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
