Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

On top of earning a great overall score, this nursing home excelled at short-term care. In fact, we awarded it an impressive grade of A for that category. Short-term care grades are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a wide spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. In that category, we gave this facility an A-. Our nursing score analyzes the facility's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the number of hours spent with patients. 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 facility the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as employing a policy of moving residents more often.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Tallying another strong category grade, this nursing home also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite minor. While this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final category we rated is long-term care. This facility was awarded a strong long-term care grade this year, with a grade of B-. Although this is not quite as strong as several of its other scores, this is nevertheless a respectable rating in that category. For patients in need of a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 97.35683 percent of its residents, which is higher than the average nursing home. This place also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
