Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a first rate nursing home overall, this facility also excelled in the category of nursing, where it received a grade of A+. Few nursing homes fared better in this area. In determining a facility's nursing rating, we look at the number of hours nurses are with patients as well as the level of licensure of those nurses. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This facility also received a strong short-term care grade. In fact, this ended up being this nursing home's second most impressive category score. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of A. Short-term care grades are typically used to grade a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to provide good rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have better levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 5.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This facility has received near flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This nursing home was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to be an immediate threat to patient health or safety. A few relatively minor dings aren't the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In the last category, this facility also received a very strong long-term care score, with a B+. This topped off an elite profile. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in this category tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure patients are well cared for. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is too frequently a dangerous illness for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave this to chance. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
