Facility Inspections


One of the reasons this ended up being a quality nursing home is it earned an A+ inspection grade. This is just about as good as it gets in this critical category. Inspection grades are based on several items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this category tend to have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate deficiency counts for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality


Adding to its elite assessments in other areas, we awarded this facility a score of A- for its long-term care score. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. It goes without saying that we were happy with what we found here in this area.

Short-term Care Quality


The third area we looked at was short-term care. This facility was awarded an impressive short-term care score, with a B in the area. Our short-term care scores are important for residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a wide scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. This place provides more services with registered nurses and physical therapists than most nursing homes we looked at. This is a great sign. The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality


The last area we assessed was nursing. We awarded this facility one of our more favorable grades in this area, with a grade of B. While this isn't on par with several of its other grades, it is nevertheless a perfectly acceptable grade. We looked at the licensure of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time those nurses were with residents, in determining our grade in this area. This facility provided 4.5 hours of nursing care per patient per day, which is among the better totals in the country. A significant portion of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the more skilled levels of nurses. We were very impressed by both of these statistics. On top of offering high levels of nursing care, this facility also excelled in the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed as well as any nursing home in the country when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
