Nurse Quality

Grade: A

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home excelled in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. Our nursing rating is mostly associated with a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided 5.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This was one of the more impressive totals we found. In addition, a significant portion of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. Both of these statistics are impressive. In addition to offering impressive levels of nursing care, this place also fared well in many of the quality-based metrics we assessed. For example, in terms of the percentage of its patients sustaining falls leading to serious injury, this facility outpaced the national average. This is often a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

To add to its strong performance in other areas, we gave this facility a score of A for our long-term care rating. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. One of the statistics we considered after this nursing home's impressive nursing hours is vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 99.68944 percent of its patients. Vaccines are a great way to avoid unnecessary deaths for the elderly. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.43 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

We awarded this facility a score of A for inspections. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area generally have few of these severe deficiencies. This place received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In our final area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for its short-term care score. This finished off an elite report card. Short-term care grades are often used to grade a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To offer highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. One of this facility's strengths is it offers more than an hour of care per day from registered nurses per patient. This is really the gold standard for this area, as it's approximately 50% higher than a typical facility's level of registered nurse staffing. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
