Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being an elite nursing home overall, this nursing home also performed well in our inspections category, where it earned a grade of A+. Few nursing homes fared this well in this area. Inspection grades account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this category typically have very few severe deficiencies. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Contributing to its superb profile, this nursing home also performed well in our long-term care area. In fact, we gave it a score of A- for the area. Nursing homes that do well in this category tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 98.054474 percent of its residents, which is much higher than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to another strength for this facility, we gave them one of our better grades in our short-term care category as well, with a B+. Short-term care scores are crucial for patients looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a broad range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final metric we assessed in this area is the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that 5.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

The last area we analyzed was nursing. We awarded this nursing home one of our more favorable scores in this area, with a grade of B. While this is not on par with several of this facility's other grades, it is nevertheless an excellent grade. There are many data points within this area. Most of the data points are tied to nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 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 nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
