Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a first rate nursing home overall, this nursing home also performed well in the area of inspections, where it earned a grade of A+. Few facilities performed as well in this category. Inspection scores account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this category tend to have very few severe deficiencies. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that we were able to find deficiency counts for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Nursing grades are mostly based on a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also performed well in the area of long-term care, where it received a grade of A-. Very few facilities performed better in this area. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly can be a deadly condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a facility doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In the final area, we gave this nursing home an A+ for its short-term care grade. This rounded out an elite profile. With our short-term care grade, we seek to create a sound barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at the facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this facility submitted information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
