Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for its nursing grade. When facilities receive this type of grade in this category it is typically a good sign for patient care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 99.52941 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents out of the hospital. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

This facility also received a nearly flawless government inspection. As a result, it earned one of our highest grades in that category with an A+. This is one of the few nursing homes to receive multiple A+'s. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite minor. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

The third category we graded was short-term care. This nursing home was awarded a very positive short-term care score, with a B+ in the category. In computing our short-term care grades, we scrutinize a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. This rating is considered to be a meaningful assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation. Unfortunately, we were not able to find information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

In the final category we looked at, this nursing home received a very favorable grade of B+ in our nursing category. With this grade, the nursing home topped off an elite profile. The nursing score assesses many subcategories, however, the primary consideration is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this nursing home 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 nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a system of turning residents more often.
