Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also found that this facility excelled in our long-term care rating. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in this category it is usually a good sign for patient care and indicates that the facility is well-staffed with nurses and aids. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is far higher than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at its number of hospitalizations. Here we found that this facility had 2.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

This facility also received a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it earned one of our highest scores in that area with an A+. This is one of the few nursing homes to receive multiple A+ category grades. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this area most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. Nursing scores are heavily correlated with nurse staffing levels. This nursing home provides 3.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility 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 country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of moving a resident even once per day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Switching gears to the fourth area, this facility received an excellent short-term care score. Although this isn't quite as impressive as some of its other scores, this remains one of the better scores we offer. In computing our short-term care scores, we scrutinize a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This rating is often a meaningful measure of a facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. It outperformed the majority of facilities with 50.2 percent of its residents returning home. This is a higher rate than most nursing homes.
