Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

To pair with its impressive overall score, we gave this nursing home an A- for our nursing rating. Our nursing rating looks at the facility's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of licensure of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with residents. 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 place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Among this nursing home's other strengths is its superb short-term care grade. We gave them one of our most favorable grades in that area, with a score of A-. Our short-term care ratings are important for people needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a wide spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to our third area, this nursing home also earned a grade of B+ for its long-term care rating. This is a well above average grade in this area. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients healthy. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

On top of its other impressive category grades, we awarded this facility a B+ for its inspection rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively minor. This particular nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
