Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also found that this nursing home excelled in long-term care. We awarded them a grade of A+ in this area. Facilities that do well in this category typically are well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients, which is far higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

This facility also earned an A+ inspection grade, making it one of the few places to receive multiple A+'s in our category grades. This is based on the nursing home's inspection reports. An A+ in this category is one of the best complements we can pay to a facility. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This indicates that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Among its many impressive grades, this facility received an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A in that category. Our nursing rating is based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of skill of those nurses and the amount of time spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In the final area, we gave this nursing home an A+ for our short-term care rating. This wrapped up a very impressive profile. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we size up a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This grade is more often than not a reliable measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation services. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 5.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
