Facility Inspections

Grade: A+

In addition to performing well overall, this nursing home earned nearly flawless government inspections. As a result, it received one of our best scores in that area with a grade of A+. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. It doesn't look like we were able to find information on deficiency's for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Contributing to its impressive profile, this nursing home also excelled in our long-term care area. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly can be a deadly health condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a facility doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this nursing home 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-minus

Adding to its strong resume, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with a grade of A-. The nursing category assesses a handful of factors, many of which are associated with nursing hours. This nursing home averages 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as having a policy of moving a patient even once per day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

In the final area, we gave this nursing home an A+ for our short-term care rating. This rounded out a very favorable report card. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
