Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to a phenomenal overall grade, this facility also received A+ nursing grade. Nursing scores are heavily correlated with quality and quantity of nursing care. This particular nursing home provided 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' 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

Contributing to its first-rate profile, this nursing home also received a strong long-term care grade, with a grade of A. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. After assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 97.54601 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is significantly higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Compounding its fine assessment, this nursing home also received a strong short-term care score, with a grade of A. In the area of short-term care, we try to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Lastly, this nursing home has earned near flawless inspections in recent years. We gave them an A- in this category. This is one of the few facilities in the nation to receive an A- or better in every category. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This facility was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
