Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a first rate nursing home overall, this nursing home also excelled in the category of nursing, where it received an A+. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. Our nursing score is primarily tied to the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides an incredible 8.9 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. Out of that total, many of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. On top of offering high levels of nursing care, this place also excelled in the quality measures we looked at. It performed as well as any facility in the country when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility performed remarkably in our long-term care rating. We awarded them a dominant score of A+ in this category. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in this category tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure patients are well cared for. In addition to really impressive nursing hour statistics, this nursing home's vaccination records was first-rate also. In fact, it vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home also received an A+ for its short-term care grade. Our short-term care scores are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a vast spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. This nursing home provides more services with physical therapists and registered nurses than most nursing homes we looked at. This is usually a favorable sign. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of nursing homes in this area with 61.2 percent of its residents returning home. This is a significantly higher rate than most facilities.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

Adding to its amazing profile, this facility has also earned near flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. This made for a perfect report card for this place. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
