Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to point out the fact that this nursing home has received near flawless government inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A+ in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are quite minor. Unfortunately, it does not look like we have deficiency data for this facility. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

This first-rate facility also performed well in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a score of A+. Few facilities fared better in this category.

On top of providing elite levels of nurse staffing, this nursing home gave the pneumonia vaccine to 99.32886 percent of its residents. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

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. The nursing rating analyzes many components, but the most important one is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This place provides an incredible 5.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. Out of that total, many of the hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. On top of providing high levels of care, this nursing home also excelled in several of the quality measures we looked at. With under 5 percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared as well as any place the country in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

The fourth category we looked at is short-term care, where this facility was awarded a grade of A-. This completed a very favorable profile. Very few facilities received an A- or better in every category. Our short-term care grade is typically used to gauge a facility's rehabilitation services. To provide high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally must offer better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. When we assessed this facility's nursing hours, we found it offered substantially more care from registered nurses than most nursing homes. The final metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
