Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to point out the fact that this facility has received near flawless government inspections recently. We gave them an A+ in this area. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. It doesn't appear that we were able to find deficiency counts for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

This top-shelf nursing home also excelled in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a score of A+. Few nursing homes fared better in this area. Short-term care scores are meaningful for people looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a wide scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. We were pleased to find that this nursing home employs both registered nurses and physical therapists. The same can't be said for all nursing homes. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 8.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Turning the page to our next category, this facility received a top-shelf long-term care grade. In fact, we awarded it a score of A in this category. For residents looking for a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate this facility's vaccination rates. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Turning to the fourth area, this facility also performed well in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it an A in this category. This wrapped up truly elite profile. Our nursing grade analyzes the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of skill of the nurses and the quantity of hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages 0.9 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
