Facility Inspections

Grade: A+

To go along with its favorable overall score, we gave this place an A+ for inspections. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

Another reason we graded this nursing home so favorably is that it received an A+ short-term care grade. This is flat out as strong as it gets in this category. Short-term care scores are crucial for prospective residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a vast scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. This place is markedly above the national average in terms of its quantity of both registered nurse and physical therapy hours available to its patients. In fact, it provided approximately 50% more care per patient from both of these groups of skilled professionals than the average nursing home provided. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. On top of excelling in the area of physical therapy staffing, we found that it fared as well as just about any nursing home with 73.8 percent of its patients returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also received a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A-. Our nursing rating considers many factors. The most heavily weighted variable is the number of hours nurses spent with patients. This nursing home boasts a really impressive 4.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day, of which a significant portion of those hours were provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly highly trained levels of nurses. On top of providing impressive levels of care, this nursing home also excelled in the quality measures we assessed. It performed as well as any nursing home in the country when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

The fourth area we assessed was long-term care, where this nursing home was awarded an A-. This wrapped up a very strong report card. Only a select few nursing homes earned an A- or higher in all four categories. For patients in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. After looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this facility submitted information on its vaccination levels. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
