Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being an elite nursing home overall, this nursing home excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A+. Very few nursing homes fared this well in this category. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report, which is still very impressive. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

This first-rate nursing home also was superb in the category of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of A+. Very few facilities performed better in this category. Facilities that excel in long-term care typically provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. After looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents out of the hospital. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition, this facility received high marks in the area of nursing. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A+. Our nursing score focuses on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of training of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures 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: B-plus

In the last category we assessed, this nursing home was given a very favorable grade of B+ in our short-term care category. With this score, the facility wrapped up a very strong profile. Short-term care grades are crucial for prospective residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires additional skilled nursing services. This includes a wide scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last metric we looked at in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
