Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also want to emphasize the fact that this facility excelled in our nursing category. We awarded them an A+ in this category. The nursing score features a number of factors. The most heavily weighted variable is the number of hours nurses spent with residents. This particular facility provided 4.7 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This was one of the more impressive totals we found. Furthermore, we found that a significant percentage of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. These are both really impressive figures. On top of offering high levels of nursing care, this nursing home also excelled in the quality measures we assessed. It performed as well as any nursing home in the state when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Adding to this facility's impressive resume, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies an immediate threat 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

This nursing home also was superb in the category of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of A-. Not many nursing homes performed better in this category. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. This facility's vaccination statistics were a bit weaker than some of its other statistics in this category, such as its nursing hours data. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 87.200005 percent of its patients. We'd love to see some improvement in this area next year. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to our next category, this nursing home was awarded a highly favorable short-term care rating. We gave it a B+ in that category, wrapping up one of our better report cards. Our short-term care grades are crucial for prospective residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a broad scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. One reason for this facility's strong score in this category is that it provides more care with registered nurses to its residents than the average nursing home. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
