Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to a phenomenal overall grade, this facility also received A+ nursing grade. There are a host of subcategories within this grade. Most of these criteria reflect the quantity of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home also received an A+ inspection grade, making it one of the few nursing homes to receive multiple A+'s in our category grades. This is based on the place's inspections. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

An additional strength for this nursing home is short-term care, where it was awarded an A+ grade. This is flat out as good as it gets in this category. Short-term care ratings are important for prospective residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. This means a vast scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.7 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last category we rated is long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a decent score in that area, with a grade of C. Even though this was not as dominant as many of its other scores, it is still not a major area of concern. For prospective residents looking for a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 90.90909 percent of its patients. This is a bit less than we anticipated but still a respectable figure. Nevertheless, this place excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
