Nurse Quality

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our nursing rating. Nursing scores are based largely on nurse staffing levels. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

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. Inspection grades account for several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this category usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Moving on our next category, we gave this nursing home a grade of A for its short-term care grade. This is a very impressive score. Short-term care scores are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.1 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The last category we assessed was long-term care. We awarded this facility one of our more favorable scores in that category, with a grade of B. Although this is not on par with some of its other grades, it is nevertheless a positive score. For prospective patients looking for a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 84.25197 percent of its residents. This is somewhat below what we anticipated. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
