Grade: A-plus

On top of receiving a great overall rating, this nursing home earned an A+ inspection rating. This score is based on its recent government inspections.

Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Among its many high-end grades, this facility was given first-rate short-term care grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A in that area. Short-term care scores are based on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a wide spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A in our nursing category. Our nursing grade is largely based on a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final category we assessed is nursing, ended up being this nursing home's weakest category. We awarded this nursing home a D in this category. This really was one of the couple of weak points of an otherwise impressive profile. For prospective residents looking for a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. After considering the amount of nursing care, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home vaccinated just 88.65546 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
