Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being an elite facility overall, this nursing home also performed well in the area of inspections, where it earned an A+. Few nursing homes fared this well in this category. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also received a top-shelf long-term care grade. In fact, this ended up being its second strongest category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a score of A. When nursing homes receive this type of score in this category it is typically a good sign for patient care and suggests that the facility is well-staffed with nurses aids. After looking at the very impressive nursing hours and other staffing provided by this nursing home, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is much higher than most nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. We found that this facility had 3.31 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Although this wasn't as impressive as some of its other scores in this area, this number may be skewed for some nursing homes based on the preexisting medical conditions of patients.

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. Our nursing grade features many subcategories. The most important one is the number of hours nurses spent with patients. This facility offers extremely high levels of nursing care, averaging 5.4 hours per resident on a daily basis. This is more nursing care than nearly any other facility provides. Finally, this nursing home also performed well in several of the quality-based metrics we assessed. For example, in terms of the number of its patients suffering falls leading to serious injury, this place performed as well as any facility in the nation. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Moving on to the last category, this nursing home also excelled in the short-term care category. In fact, we gave it a B+ for this category. This completed a very strong profile. Short-term care grades are generally employed to grade a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To offer highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. One reason for this facility's strong score in this category is that it provides more care with registered nurses to its residents than the average nursing home. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from this nursing home. It performed respectably in this area with 48.9 percent of its residents returning home.
