Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for its nursing grade. In the area of short-term care, we seek to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 6.8 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Adding to this facility's impressive resume, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this area generally have few severe deficiencies. We were not able to find information on deficiency's for this nursing home. Without information regarding deficiencies for this nursing home, it ended up being a challenge to evaluate it in terms of this category.

Grade: A-minus

To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. The nursing rating consists of many subcategories, most of which are tied to nursing hours. 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 facility 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 many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Moving on to the next category, this facility was awarded a very strong long-term care rating. We awarded it an A- in that category, giving this facility straight A's. Facilities that receive this type of grade in long-term care typically provide consistent around the clock care to ensure residents are well cared for. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 97.4212 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is much higher than the average nursing home. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
