Nurse Quality

Grade: A

In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this facility received an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A in that category. When computing our nursing scores, we analyze both nursing hours and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home averages 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 nursing home the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of turning patients more frequently.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Contributing to its strong profile, this facility also was given a superb short-term care score, with a grade of A. In our short-term care rating, we try to craft a valuable barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at a nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last metric we looked at in this area is the number of residents that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that 6.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We also want to emphasize the fact that this nursing home was awarded a strong grade of A in our long-term care category. Facilities that excel in long-term care tend to provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. On top of considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is far higher than most nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home has received near flawless inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A- in this category. This is one of the few facilities in the state to receive an A- or better in every category. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This nursing home was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies an immediate threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
