Nurse Quality

Grade: A

One of the reasons this place received a great overall grade is that it received an impressive nursing score. In this area, we gave this nursing home a grade of A. In computing a nursing home's nursing rating, we consider the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents and the level of licensure of those nurses. 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 nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Adding to its impressive category scores, this nursing home also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A. Few nursing homes performed as well in this area. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This facility also was given a first-rate short-term care score. Indeed, this is this nursing home's third strongest category grade. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of A. In the area of short-term care, we strive to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last statistic we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 6.7 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In the final category we scored, this nursing home received a very favorable grade of A in our long-term care category. With this grade, the facility completed a straight A profile. Facilities that excel in long-term care typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is far higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
