Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this facility also received A+ short-term care grade. Our short-term care scores are presumably more critical for residents needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally mandates more highly-skilled nursing. This includes not only nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 6.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. This turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this facility an A. There are a host of datapoints within this category. Most of these factors relate to staffing levels. This nursing home provides 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 many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This nursing home has earned near flawless inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A in this area. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Turning to our final area, this nursing home also excelled in the long-term care category. We gave it an A- in that area. This finalized a straight A report card. Facilities that excel in this category typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. After we finished assessing the quantity of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 97.38562 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia tragically can be a life threatening health condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a nursing home does not leave its residents vulnerable. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
