Grade: A-plus

Our nursing rating looks at the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the amount of time spent with patients. This nursing home boasts a really impressive 8.2 hours of nursing care per patient daily, of which a significant portion was provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. This is one of the higher totals of nursing hours we were able to find. In addition to providing high levels of care, this place was also above average in each of the major quality measures we assessed in this category. It performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Turning to inspections, this facility excelled in that area, which is based on the nursing home's recent inspections. We awarded it an A for that category. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Turning the page to our next category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our long-term care rating. This is a first-rate rating. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it typically means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. On top of offering very favorable levels of nursing care, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. This percentage is also far higher than most nursing homes. This combination proved to be successful as this place also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Switching gears to our last area, this facility was given an extremely favorable short-term care score. We gave it a grade of A- in that area, giving this facility straight A's. Short-term care ratings are meaningful for residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a wide range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. One of this place's strengths is that it provides more than an hour of care per day from registered nurses per resident. This is the gold standard for this area, as it's roughly 1.5 times higher than the average place's level of registered nurse staffing. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
