Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

One of the reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it earned an A+ in short-term care. This is as good as it gets in this category. In the area of short-term care, we strive to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. One reason for this facility's strong score in this category is that it provides more care with registered nurses to its residents than the average nursing home. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return home from this facility. It outperformed the vast majority of facilities in the nation with 73.4 percent of its residents returning home. This is a significantly higher rate than most nursing homes.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home also received an A+ nursing grade, making it one of the few nursing homes to receive multiple A+ category grades. There are several criteria within this grade. Many of these datapoints reflect nurse staffing. This nursing home provides an incredible 4.6 hours of nursing care per patient daily. Out of that total, many of the hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the more highly trained levels of nurses. On top of providing impressive levels of nursing care, this place was also above average in each of the major quality measures we looked at in this category. It performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its high-end assessment, this facility also was awarded a superb long-term care score, with a score of A. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in this category it is typically a good sign for patient care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. On top of assessing the elite quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff at this facility, we also were impressed by the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 98.765434 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This facility has received near flawless government inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A in this category. This is one of the few nursing homes in the state to receive an A- or better in every category. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
