Grade: A

In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this facility received an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A in that category. Nursing grades are based in large part on quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home averages 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

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 significant factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This nursing home was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to be an immediate risk to patient safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Contributing to its remarkable resume, this facility also received an excellent short-term care score, with a grade of A-. In computing these short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to devise a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who returned home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Moving on to our last category, this facility also performed well in our long-term care category. In fact, we awarded it a B+ in this category. This finalized a first-rate report card. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients out of the hospital. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
