Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a great overall grade, this facility also received A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections were virtually flawless. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to resident 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

This nursing home also was superb in the category of short-term care, where it received a grade of A. Very few nursing homes received a better grade in this category. Our short-term care ratings are arguably more important for people in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally requires more highly-skilled nursing. This includes not merely nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.6 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This facility also was awarded a top-shelf long-term care score. In fact, this turned out to be this facility's third strongest category score. In that area, we awarded this facility a score of A. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it typically means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. After we finished assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia tragically can be a deadly ailment for nursing home residents so we like it when a facility doesn't take any chances. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

In the final area, this nursing home also was awarded an impressive nursing rating, with a grade of A-. This finished off a rare straight A profile. Our nursing grade assesses quite a few subcategories, many of which are associated with nursing hours. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as employing a policy of moving residents even once per day.
