Nurse Quality

Grade: A

We also wanted to point out that this facility received an impressive grade of A for our nursing category. When computing our nursing grades, we factor in both staffing levels and the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its top-shelf profile, this facility also received a superb short-term care grade, with a grade of A-. With our short-term care score, we attempt to create a fair gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at a facility's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who returned home from this facility. We found that 5.7 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

In addition, this nursing home also received excellent inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our best scores in that area, with an impressive grade of A-. Inspection ratings are tied to many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this area typically have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through 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. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next category we looked at was long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility an impressive grade of B. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 99.016396 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly can be a life or death ailment for nursing home residents so we like it when a nursing home doesn't take any chances. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
