Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a first rate facility overall, this nursing home also excelled in the category of nursing, where it received a grade of A+. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Our nursing rating is primarily based on the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Adding to its impressive category grades, this facility also excelled in the category of inspections, where it earned a grade of A. Not many nursing homes performed better in this area. Inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this area generally have very few severe deficiencies. While this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the government 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 inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Compounding its strong resume, this facility also received an excellent short-term care score, with a score of A. Our short-term care ratings are probably more meaningful for individuals requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

The final category we rated was long-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a grade of A. This wrapped up a very favorable profile. Few nursing homes received an A- or better in all four categories. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly can be a life or death illness for nursing home patients so we prefer when a facility doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
