Nurse Quality

Grade: A

In addition to being a first rate facility overall, this nursing home also excelled in nursing, where it received an A. In determining our nursing grades, we look at both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of those nurses. This particular nursing home provided 0 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 many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Adding to this facility's impressive resume, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite minor. This particular nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also received an impressive long-term care grade. In fact, we awarded it an above average score of B+ in this category. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in long-term care tend to provide consistent around the clock care to ensure patients are kept in good health. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is often a deadly ailment for nursing home patients so we prefer when a facility doesn't leave this to chance. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In the final area, this facility also was awarded a first-rate short-term care grade, with a B+. This finished off a very impressive profile. Short-term care grades are generally used to assess a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To have highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to feature better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this facility submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The last metric we considered in this area is the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
