Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility excelled in our nursing rating. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. There are a host of criteria included in this category. Many of the criteria reflect staffing levels. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as having a protocol of moving patients more often.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

This top notch nursing home also fared very well in the area of long-term care, where it received a score of A+. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. After assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents out of the hospital. 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 less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This facility also earned a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A-. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area tend to have few of these severe deficiencies. While this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Turning to the next area, this nursing home was given a very strong short-term care rating. We awarded it a grade of A- in this category, resulting in this facility receiving straight A's. Our short-term care scores are vital for people requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a wide range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.
