Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for its nursing grade. When determining a facility's nursing score, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses are with patients and the levels of training of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

This high end facility also excelled in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of A+. Very few nursing homes performed better in this area. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is usually a good sign for resident care and suggests that the facility is well-staffed with nurses and aids. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients, which is far higher than the average nursing home. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

Continuing with its first-class performance, this nursing home also earned an A+ inspection score. This is based on the facility's recent inspection reports. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with better grades in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. It does not look like we were able to find deficiency counts for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Moving on to our fourth area, this facility also performed admirably in the short-term care category. We gave it a grade of A for that category. This rounded out truly elite report card. Short-term care grades are generally employed to score a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to have quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have higher levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients that returned home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
