Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home an A+ for its short-term care rating. In calculating our short-term care grades, we analyze the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This score is more often than not a meaningful assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 6.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

Adding to an already impressive profile, this facility also received virtually flawless health inspections in recent years. As a result, we awarded it an A+ inspection grade. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

Turning the page to our next category, this first-rate nursing home also was superb in the area of long-term care. In this category, it received a A+. Only a small group of nursing homes performed better in this area. Facilities that receive this type of grade in this category tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure residents are kept in good health. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccinations. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. This is a great way to minimize negative health outcomes for the nursing home population. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

In our last area, this facility also was given a very strong nursing score, with an A. This wrapped up a straight A profile. Our nursing score analyzes the facility's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of training of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with residents. This facility provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
