Nurse Quality

Grade: A

In addition to being a first rate facility overall, this nursing home also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A. We assessed the licensure of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time those nurses were with residents, in computing our rating in this category. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of avoiding 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

Adding to its impressive resume, this nursing home also performed well in our short-term care category. In fact, it received a score of A in that category. Short-term care grades are typically employed to grade a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to have quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must provide higher levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also received a nearly flawless government inspection report. As a result, it earned one of our best grades in that category with an A-. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

The last category we analyzed was long-term care, where this facility was given an A-. This completed a first-rate profile. Only a select few facilities received an A- or higher in each of our categories. For residents in need of a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. After we finished looking at the amount of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 85.45455 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, we were pleased to find facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
