Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also would like to note that this facility excelled in our nursing score. We gave them an impressive grade of A+ in this area. Nursing scores are primarily associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home also was given an A+ for its long-term care grade. When facilities receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is a good sign for resident care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. After we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly can be a dangerous condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a facility doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Moving on to our inspection category, this nursing home excelled in that area, which is based on the nursing home's recent inspection reports. In fact, we gave it an A for that category. Our inspection grades account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this category tend to have few severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Switching gears to the final category, this nursing home also performed well in our short-term care category. In fact, we gave it a grade of A for that area. This wrapped up truly elite profile. In computing our short-term care scores, we assess a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. This grade is typically a useful assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
