Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a first rate nursing home overall, this facility also fared well in the area of long-term care, where it earned an A+. Few nursing homes fared better in this area. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care typically provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 99.62476 percent of its residents, which is significantly higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. 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

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. In that category, we awarded this nursing home an A. The nursing rating analyzes quite a few factors, however, the primary consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home 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 by employing a policy of moving patients more often.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Racking up yet another strong category grade, this nursing home also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned a grade of A-. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The final area we graded was short-term care, in which this nursing home was awarded a B. While this is its poorest category score, this is nevertheless a favorable grade. In our short-term care category, we endeavor to craft a sound gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at a nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. We weren't able to locate registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The last datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
