Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this facility also received an excellent short-term care score, with a grade of A. Our short-term care ratings are crucial for individuals seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 6.2 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Our nursing grade is mostly tied to the facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics 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 facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by having a system of moving patients even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also was dominant in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a score of A. Not many nursing homes received a better grade in this category. When facilities receive this type of grade in this category it is a good sign for resident care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. After we finished assessing the amount of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 98.47716 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly can be a deadly condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a facility doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Turning to our inspection category, this facility excelled in that area, which is based on the nursing home's recent inspections. We awarded it an elite grade of A for that category. This finished off its straight A report card. Inspection scores are based on many data points located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this category typically have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
