Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home received an A+ for nursing. Our nursing rating focuses on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of training of those nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. This facility provides an incredible 6.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. Out of that total, many of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the most highly highly trained levels of nurses. On top of offering high levels of nursing care, this facility also excelled in several of the quality-based metrics we looked at. With under 5 percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility Michigan in this category. This is often an indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls. Many pressure ulcers could be avoided by offering better nursing care and a policy of turning residents even once per day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also gave this nursing home a score of A+ for its short-term care grade. Our short-term care grades are believed to be more critical for individuals requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires more highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not just nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. This nursing home elevated its grade in this category by offering more care from registered nurses to its residents than the average facility. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This place outperformed the vast majority of facilities in the nation with 70.9 percent of its residents returning home. This is a significantly better rate than most nursing homes.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This nursing home has received near flawless inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A in this area. Our inspection grades account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area usually have few of these severe deficiencies. This facility was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few relatively minor dings are not something to panic about.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Switching gears to our last area, this nursing home received a high-end long-term care rating. We gave it a grade of B+ in that area, topping off one of our better profiles. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. In addition to patient-friendly nursing hour statistics, this nursing home's vaccination data was top notch as well. Indeed, this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This combination proved to be effective as this nursing home keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
