Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a first rate nursing home overall, this facility also excelled in the category of nursing, where it received an A+. Few nursing homes fared better in this category. Our nursing rating assesses the facility's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of training of the nurses as well as the amount of time spent with residents. This facility provided 0.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home also was given an A+ for its long-term care score. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. After considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 99.086754 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents out of the hospital. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Tallying another strong category grade, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A. Few nursing homes fared better in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively insignificant. 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

In our last area, we awarded this facility an A for its short-term care rating. This wrapped up a very strong profile. Our short-term care grade is generally used to assess a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to provide high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have better levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
