Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of receiving an elite overall rating, this facility earned an A+ inspection grade. This score is based on its recent inspection reports. An A+ in this area is one of the highest complements we can offer a facility. Arguably the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. 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-plus

We also gave this facility a grade of A+ for its long-term care grade. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is far higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

The next area we looked at is short-term care. Adding to its strong resume, this facility also excelled in this category. In fact, we gave it a grade of of A for the category. Short-term care grades are generally used to judge a facility's performance with rehabilitation To offer highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide better levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients that were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 6.2 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

In the last area, we gave this nursing home a grade of A+ for its nursing grade. This finished off a first-rate profile. We weighed the qualifications of nurses employed by the facility, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses worked with patients, in calculating our grade in this category. This nursing home averages 0.4 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 in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
