Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a first rate facility overall, this facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received an A+. Few nursing homes fared better in this area. Our nursing rating considers many subcategories. The most important one is the amount of time nurses spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.5 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 state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of moving patients more often.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition, this nursing home also earned a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with an A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively minor. This place received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies an immediate risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

The next category we looked at is long-term care. Adding to its first-rate profile, this facility also excelled in this area. In fact, we awarded it a of A- in that area. When facilities receive this kind of grade in this category it is a good sign for resident care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a proven method to avoid unnecessary deaths for the nursing home population. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

In the final category, this nursing home also received an impressive short-term care rating, with a grade of A-. This finished off an elite report card. In our short-term care assessment, we try to forge a valuable gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess 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 employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 5.3 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.
