Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home received an A+ for nursing. Nursing scores are largely based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

An additional reason we assessed this facility so highly is that it received an A+ short-term care grade. This is flat out as dominant as it gets in this area. Our short-term care scores are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a broad range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.7 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Moving on to our inspection category, this facility excelled in that area, which is based on the facility's recent government inspection reports. In fact, we awarded it an impressive grade of A for that category. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this place had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final area we scored was long-term care. We awarded this facility an acceptable grade in this area, with a B-. While this wasn't as high as some of this facility's other scores, it is nevertheless not a major area of concern. For long-term care residents, the primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
