Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In addition to being a quality nursing home overall, this nursing home really fared well in the area of long-term care, where it received an A. Few nursing homes fared better in this category. Facilities that do well in this category typically are well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is much higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In fact, nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B+. Our nursing grade is mostly based on a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 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 place the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of moving a resident at least once a day.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this nursing home a grade of B- for our inspections rating. This is a very respectable nursing score. Inspection scores are tied to several items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. While this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This tells you the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Switching gears to our next area, this facility was given an acceptable short-term care grade of C. Short-term care scores are based in part on a facility's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final metric we considered in this category is the number of residents who ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that just 2.1 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure was below the national average.
