Grade: A-plus

Our inspection scores are tied to many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this category tend to have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This facility received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to patient safety or health. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

This facility also was given an A+ for its short-term care score. In our short-term care category, we try to craft a meaningful measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze the nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. We were pleased to find that this nursing home employs both registered nurses and physical therapists. The same can't be said for all nursing homes. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

This facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. The nursing grade weighs quite a few subcategories, most of which are associated with quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this place 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 state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a policy of moving residents even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final area we scored was long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a decent score in that area, with a B-. Although this isn't as favorable as many of its other grades, it is still not a major area of concern. In a long-term care environment, the primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Unfortunately, we were not able to find this place's vaccination data. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
