Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

One of the reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it earned an A+ in short-term care. Our short-term care ratings are based on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a wide spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final metric we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 6.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

This facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Our nursing grade is primarily associated with a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as employing a system of moving a resident more frequently.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Another impressive feature of this facility is its inspection rating. In that area, we gave this facility an A-. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively insignificant. While this place had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This means that 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 point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

The fourth area we rated is long-term care, where this facility received a grade of B+. This rounded out a very strong report card. Only a select few nursing homes earned a B+ or better in in each area we assessed. Nursing homes that do well in this category tend to provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is significantly 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. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
