Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

In addition to being a first rate facility overall, this nursing home also excelled in nursing, where it earned a grade of A-. The nursing rating analyzes a handful of factors, many of which are tied to quantities of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed 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 prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by having a policy of moving a patient more often.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also would like to note the fact that this nursing home received a top-shelf score of A- in our long-term care area. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. After assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is significantly higher than the average nursing home. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Adding another impressive category grade, we awarded this facility an impressive grade of B+ for our inspections category. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

The last category we looked at is short-term care, where this facility was awarded a grade of B+. This completed an elite report card. Not many facilities received a B+ or higher in each of our categories. Our short-term care ratings are probably more important for those needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually requires more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not just nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. We weren't able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
