Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also want to note that this facility excelled in our nursing category. We gave them an A+ in this category. When computing our nursing grades, we assess both nursing hours and the training levels of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics 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 nursing home the state 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 having a policy of turning residents more often.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

This facility has also received near flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this area usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. While this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This facility also was superb in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a score of A. Not many nursing homes fared better in this area. In determining our short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to formulate a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last item we assessed in this category is the number of residents that returned home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

The last category we assessed was long-term care, where this facility received a grade of B+. This rounded out a very strong report card. Only a select few facilities earned a B+ or better in all four categories. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care tend to provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 99.85915 percent of its patients, which is far higher than most nursing homes. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
