Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a great overall grade, this facility also received A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections were virtually flawless. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that we have information on deficiency's for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also was awarded a fine long-term care grade. In fact, this turned out to be this facility's second most impressive category grade. In that category, this facility received a grade of A. Nursing homes that do well in this category tend to provide patients with better supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. In addition to providing elite levels of nursing care, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 98.07692 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.56 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its strong resume, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with a grade of A-. Nursing scores are tied to nurse staffing levels. This place offers extremely high levels of nursing care, averaging 5.2 hours per patient daily. This is more nursing care than nearly any other place provides. Lastly, this place also performed well in several of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In terms of the percentage of its residents sustaining falls which lead to serious injury, this facility performed as well as any nursing home in the nation.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

The final area we rated is short-term care, where this facility was given a B+. This completed a very favorable report card. Not many nursing homes received a B+ or better in each of our categories. In our short-term care grade, we attempt to create a fair barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at a nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. One reason for this facility's strong score in this category is that it provides a greater volume of physical therapist hours to its residents than the average nursing home. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. In addition to excelling in the area of physical therapy, we found that it performed as well as just about any nursing home in the country in this area with 57.3 percent of its patients returning home.
