Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this facility also received an A+ long-term care grade. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it typically means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is often a life or death illness for nursing home residents so we prefer when a facility does not roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This facility has received near flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This place received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies an immediate risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also received a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A. There are numerous factors included in this grade. Most of these criteria relate to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

In our final category, this facility also received a first-rate short-term care grade, with a grade of A-. This completed an elite profile. Short-term care grades are commonly used to score a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To provide quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must provide higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.
