Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home received an A+ for nursing. We weighed the skill-level of nurses employed by the nursing home, as well as the quantity of hours those nurses spent with residents, in computing our rating in this area. This nursing home boasts a really impressive 7.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily, of which a significant portion was provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly highly skilled levels of nurses. This is among the better totals of nursing hours we were able to find. On top of offering impressive levels of nursing care, this nursing home also excelled in the quality measures we looked at. For example, it performed as well as any nursing home in the country in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We view these areas as reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care offered.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home also was given an A+ long-term care grade, making it one of the few nursing homes to be awarded multiple A+ category scores. Facilities that excel in long-term care typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. One of the datapoints we considered after this nursing home's above average nursing hours was vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 99.61832 percent of its residents. Vaccines are a great way to avoid unnecessary hospitalizations for the elderly. This combination proved to be successful as this nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. While it had 2.08 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted score was better than most facilities since it had some more complicated patients.

Inspection grades are based on many datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this area tend to have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

The last area we rated is short-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a grade of B+. This wrapped up a very favorable report card. Not many nursing homes received a B+ or better in every single category. Short-term care grades are typically used to grade a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. Remarkably, this facility provides about 1.5 times as many hours of services from physical therapists and registered nurses than most facilities we looked at. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 28.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
