Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In addition to being a first rate facility overall, this nursing home also excelled in the area of long-term care, where it earned an A. Few nursing homes did better in this area. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in this category tend to provide consistent around the clock care to ensure patients are kept in good health. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 97.64706 percent of its patients, which is significantly higher than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Turning to our inspection category, this facility excelled in that area, which is based on the facility's recent government inspections. We awarded it an A for that category. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this area typically have few of these severe deficiencies. 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 impressive resume, this nursing home also excelled in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. Our nursing score includes many factors, most of which are tied to nursing hours. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In the final category we analyzed, this facility received an impressive grade grade of A in our short-term care category. With this grade, the facility topped off a straight A report card. Our short-term care ratings are likely most critical for folks requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes not just nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.2 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
