Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this nursing home received an excellent long-term care grade. In fact, we gave it an impressive grade of A in that category. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. This nursing home's vaccination statistics weren't as impressive as its nursing hours data. It administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 85.58559 percent of its patients. We'd like to see some improvement herein this statistic next year. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Contributing to its superb resume, this nursing home also performed well in our short-term care category. In fact, we gave it a grade of A for that category. Short-term care grades are generally employed to score a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To have good rehabilitation services, facilities generally must feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. This nursing home elevated its score in this category by providing more care from registered nurses to its patients than the average nursing home. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return home from this facility. This place fared as well as just about any nursing home in this area with 63.1 percent of its residents returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A in our nursing category. We looked at the skill-level of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the number of hours those nurses worked with patients, in determining our score in this category. This particular nursing home provided 4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. Roughly a quarter of that care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. Both of these figures beat out the national average. Lastly, this facility also excelled in several quality-based metrics we assessed. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the nation in this category.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Another impressive feature for this place is its inspection score. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of A-, wrapping up its straight A performance. Inspection scores are tied to many data points located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that excel in this category have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. 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.
