Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

On top of receiving a great overall score, this facility also received an A+ in short-term care. In our short-term care grade, we endeavor to forge a valuable gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze the nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. This facility excelled at the highest level in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It offered about 50% more care from physical therapists and registered nurses than the average nursing home. This is an excellent sign. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. On top of excelling in the area of physical therapy staffing, we found that it performed as well as just about any facility with 65.9 percent of its patients returning home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home also received an A+ inspection grade, making it one of the rare places to receive multiple A+'s in our category grades. This is based on the facility's inspections. An A+ in this area is one of the biggest complements we can pay to a nursing home. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its strong resume, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with a grade of A. In calculating our nursing scores, we factor in both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of those nurses. This place provided 4.9 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is among the highest figures in the country. A significant percentage of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the most highly skilled levels of nurses. We are really impressed by both of these statistics. In addition to looking at levels of nursing care, we also looked at a few quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these datapoints as reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

The fourth area we rated is long-term care, where this facility received a grade of A. This finished off a very favorable report card. Not many nursing homes earned an A- or higher in in each area we assessed. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. In addition to considering the elite quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff at this nursing home, we also were impressed by the facility's record for vaccinations. For example, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
