Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

On top of being a first rate facility overall, this nursing home also fared well in our long-term care category, where it earned a grade of A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it typically means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 98.777176 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents out of the hospital. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition, this facility also received a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it received one of our best grades in that category with a score of A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite insignificant. This facility was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Among its many impressive grades, this facility received an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A- in that category. The nursing category includes quite a few datapoints, most of which are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a policy of moving a patient more often.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Switching gears to our last area, this nursing home also excelled in our short-term care category. We awarded it a grade of B+ in that area. This finalized a very impressive profile. Short-term care grades are meaningful for prospective residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more highly-skilled nursing. This means a vast scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we considered in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.
