Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to a phenomenal overall grade, this facility also received A+ nursing grade. Nursing scores are based largely on quality and quantity of nursing care. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a policy of moving patients more frequently.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

In addition, this facility also earned a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it earned one of our best grades in that area with a score of A-. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also was given a high-end short-term care score. In fact, this turned out to be this facility's third most impressive category score. In that area, this facility received a grade of A-. In the category of short-term care, we strive to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last item we considered in this category is the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that 5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next area we rated was long-term care. We awarded this nursing home one of our better scores in this category, with a B. Even though this is not as strong as many of this nursing home's other scores, it is still a positive score. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. Once we assessed the quantity of nursing care, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia tragically can be a dangerous health condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
