Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to a phenomenal overall grade, this facility also received A+ nursing grade. Our nursing rating analyzes quite a few datapoints, but the primary consideration is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provides 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility Delaware in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by having a policy of moving patients even once per day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home received superb marks in the area of short-term care. For this reason, it was given one of our highest scores in that area with a score of A+. Our short-term care ratings are considered to be more meaningful for patients in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who returned home from this nursing home. We found that 6.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

In addition, this nursing home also earned excellent inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our best grades in that category, with a grade of A-. Arguably the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. This is really what you want to see in this important metric.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Switching gears to the last category, this nursing home was awarded an acceptable long-term care score. While this wasn't nearly as strong as several of its other grades, this is really nothing to be ashamed of. Our long-term care scores are more critical for residents in need of more conventional assistance related to personal care. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is a very solid figure. This facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
