Facility Inspections

Grade: A+

In addition to faring well overall, this nursing home also received nearly flawless government inspections. Therefore, it earned one of our highest scores in that area with a grade of A+. Inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this category tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. It doesn't appear that we were able to find information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also gave this facility a score of A+ for its long-term care grade. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are well cared for. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 96.53465 percent of its residents, which is more 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 patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 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. When computing a nursing home's nursing score, we assess the amount of time nurses commit to residents as well as the levels of training of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this place 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 frequently be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of turning patients at least once a day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

The final area we analyzed was short-term care. This first-rate nursing home also excelled in this category, in which it received an A+. This topped off a amazing profile of A+'s. Our short-term care grades are probably most critical for residents requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not just nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, 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 nursing home. We found that 5.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
