Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

To pair with its strong overall score, we gave this facility a grade of A+ for its short-term care rating. Short-term care grades are crucial for individuals looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional skilled nursing. This includes a vast range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. This facility excelled in the two key staffing areas we assessed. The facility provided about 50% more care from registered nurses and physical therapists than a typical nursing home. This is definitely an excellent sign. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of facilities with 70.5 percent of its patients returning home. This is a significantly higher rate than most facilities.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

This facility received high grades in the area of nursing as well. In fact, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A. Nursing scores are primarily associated with the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides an incredible 4.5 hours of nursing care per resident daily. Very few nursing homes provide this quantity of nursing care to their patients. Out of this total, many of the hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. On top of offering impressive levels of nursing care, this nursing home also performed well in several of the quality measures we looked at. For example, in terms of the percentage of its patients suffering falls resulting in serious injury, this place performed as well as any nursing home the country. Preventing major falls is typically an indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

We also wanted to emphasize this facility's nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we scored is long-term care, which was this nursing home's worst category. Sadly, it received an F in this category, which is obviously a bit concerning. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is typically a bad sign for patient care and it may mean that the facility is not as well-staffed. This facility's vaccination records were not as impressive as its nursing hours data. This nursing home gave the pneumonia vaccine to just 76.59575 percent of its residents. We'd like to see some improvement in this area in the future. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
