Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In addition to being a first rate nursing home overall, this nursing home also excelled at short-term care, where it earned an A. Few facilities performed better in this category. Short-term care grades are often used to gauge a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To offer good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to feature higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its impressive category grades, this nursing home excelled in the category of inspections, where it received a grade of A-. Not many nursing homes performed better in this area. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This tells you CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent 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-minus

We also wanted to draw your attention to the fact that this facility was given an elite score of A- in our long-term care category. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. Once we concluded our assessment of the amount of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 99.26199 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is often a life threatening ailment for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Switching gears to our last category, this nursing home received an extremely favorable nursing rating. We gave it a grade of B+ in this area, completing one of our better report cards. When determining a facility's nursing rating, we assess the number of hours nurses are with residents as well as the level of skill of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as having a policy of turning a patient more often.
