Nurse Quality

Grade: A

To pair with its excellent overall grade, we gave this facility an A for its nursing grade. Nursing scores are mostly associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This facility also received a dominant short-term care score. Indeed, this is its second most impressive category grade. In that area, we gave this facility a score of A. Our short-term care grades are arguably more meaningful for residents in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional skilled nursing. This means not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 6.6 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This facility has received near flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next area we looked at was long-term care. We awarded this facility one of our higher grades in this area, with a grade of B. Even though this was not as favorable as a few of its other scores, it is still a positive grade. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 97.61905 percent of its patients, which is much higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
