Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home received an A+ for nursing. We weighed the skill-level of nurses at the facility, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses worked with patients, in determining our rating in this area. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility 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: A

To complement its elite performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for its short-term care grade. Our short-term care ratings are vital for people needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more skilled nursing. This means a vast scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 6.2 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We also want to alert you to the fact that this nursing home was awarded a strong grade of A in our long-term care category. Facilities that excel in long-term care tend to provide patients with closer supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. After we finished assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 96.969696 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is often a dangerous condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its impressive category grades, this nursing home also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an impressive grade of A-. This wrapped up a straight A report card for this facility. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This particular nursing home received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
