Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

To go along with its strong overall score, this facility earned a B+ for its nursing rating. This is a quality score in this category. In calculating a facility's nursing score, we consider the amount of time nurses are caring for patients and the level of skill of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a policy of turning residents even once per day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

An additional strong feature for this facility is that it was given an impressive short-term care grade. In fact, this ended up being its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B+. In our short-term care grade, we try to craft a fair measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Finally, we considered the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.9 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

This facility also performed at a high level in the category of inspections. It earned a nearly flawless government inspection report this year. It earned one of our highest grades in that category with a grade of B+. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to patient safety or health. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Switching gears to the fourth category, this nursing home was given an excellent long-term care rating. This facility didn't prove to have any real weaknesses. For residents seeking a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 91.47059 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is a bit lower than we anticipated but still a decent percentage. 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 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
