Nurse Quality

A+
Oct 18: A+Nov 18: A+Dec 18: A+Jan 19: A+Feb 19: A+
Historical

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for its nursing grade. Our nursing rating analyzes several factors, most of which are based on nursing hours. This nursing home boasts a really impressive 7.7 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, of which a significant portion was provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly highly skilled levels of nurses. This is among the highest totals of nursing hours we found. On top of providing impressive levels of nursing care, this place also excelled in the quality-based metrics we looked at. By way of illustration, it performed as well as any nursing home in the state in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these areas as predictive indicators of the quality of nursing care offered.

Facility Inspections

Oct 18: A+Nov 18: A+Dec 18: A+Jan 19: A+Feb 19: A+
Historical

This facility also received an A+ inspection grade, making it one of the rare facilities to receive multiple A+'s in our categories. This is based on the facility's inspection reports. Arguably the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

A+
Oct 18: A+Nov 18: A+Dec 18: AJan 19: A+Feb 19: A+
Historical

This facility also received an A+ for its long-term care score. Facilities that do well in long-term care typically provide residents with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccinations. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 95 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a reliable method to minimize unnecessary hospitalizations for the aged 65 and up population. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

A
Oct 18: ANov 18: ADec 18: AJan 19: AFeb 19: A
Historical

In the last category we looked at, this nursing home was awarded a very favorable grade of A in our short-term care category. With this score, the facility topped off a straight A profile. Short-term care ratings are meaningful for individuals in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional highly-skilled nursing. This includes a broad spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. This nursing home is the gold standard when it comes to skilled nursing staffing. In fact, it provided roughly one and a half times as many physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical facility. This is what we like to find when assessing a nursing home in this category. The final measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
