Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a great overall score, this facility also received an A+ in short-term care. In the category of short-term care, we try to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 6.8 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. In that category, we awarded this facility an A. Our nursing rating is largely associated with the nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics 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 nursing home the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a policy of moving residents at least once a day.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This facility has received near flawless inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this category. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. A deficiency-free inspection report is definitely the goal.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The last area we analyzed is long-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a grade of B. Even though this wound up being its poorest category grade, this is nevertheless an impressive score. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in long-term care typically provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure patients are kept in good health. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 95.63107 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients healthy. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
