Facility Inspections

Grade: A+

In addition to receiving an elite overall rating, this nursing home earned an A+ inspection grade. This is based on its recent government inspections. An A+ in this area is one of the best complements we can pay to a facility. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. It does not appear that we were able to find information on deficiency's for this nursing home. 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 wanted to direct your attention to the fact that this facility performed well in our long-term care category. We gave them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it generally means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. In addition to providing well above average levels of nursing care, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients healthy. This combination proved to be effective as this place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. While it had 1.86 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted score was better than most nursing homes due to it having some more complex patients.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

Another reason we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received an A+ nursing grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category.

This nursing home boasts a really impressive 4.2 hours of nursing care per patient each day, of which a significant percentage of those hours were provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. This is one of the higher totals of nursing hours we found at any facility. In addition to providing impressive levels of nursing care, this nursing home also excelled in the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed as well as any nursing home in the country in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Switching gears to the final area, this nursing home also excelled in our short-term care category. We gave it a grade of A- in this area. This finalized a straight A report card. In computing our short-term care scores, we look at the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. This score is often a useful assessment of the facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. One of this nursing home's strengths is registered nurse hours. We found that it offers more care from registered nurses to its residents than most facilities. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from the facility. This place performed better than most facilities in this area with 51.4 percent of its residents returning home. For most facilities, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.
