Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being an elite nursing home overall, this facility excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A+. Few facilities performed as well in this category. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also want to note the fact that this nursing home was awarded a top-shelf score of A- in our short-term care category. In crafting these short-term care grades, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to devise a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.7 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility was awarded an impressive grade of A- in our long-term care area. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in long-term care tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure patients are kept in good health. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 99.45355 percent of its residents, which is significantly higher than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

In the last area, this nursing home also was awarded a very strong nursing grade, with a grade of A-. This finished off a very favorable report card. Our nursing rating assesses a handful of factors, but the paramount consideration is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
