Nurse Quality

Grade: A

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home excelled in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. When determining a nursing home's nursing rating, we consider the amount of time nurses are seeing patients as well as the skill levels of the nurses. This facility provided 4.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, which is among the highest figures in the country. A significant percentage of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the more skilled levels of nurses. We were really impressed by these figures. On top of offering high levels of care, this facility also excelled in several of the quality-based metrics we assessed. With under five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared as well as any facility Michigan in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We also would like to alert you to the fact that this nursing home was given a strong score of A in our short-term care category. Short-term care grades are vital for individuals seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of skilled nursing. This means a broad scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. One of this nursing home's strengths is registered nurse hours. This facility provides more care from registered nurses than most nursing homes. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. It was above average in this area with 54.6 percent of its patients returning home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

This facility also earned first-rate inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our more favorable grades in that area, with a grade of B+. Inspection grades are based on several items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that score well in this area tend to have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we analyzed was long-term care, in which this facility was awarded a grade of B-. This proved to be this nursing home's worst category. This is nevertheless not a bad grade. Our long-term care scores are more critical for those needing more traditional assistance related to activities of daily living. One of the factors we considered after this nursing home's very solid nursing hours is vaccines. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. This is a great way to avoid unnecessary deaths for the elderly population. This combination proved to be successful as this place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.89 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
