Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to performing well overall, this facility received high marks in our short-term care rating as well. As a result, it received our highest score in that category with an A+. In computing our short-term care scores, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to devise a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. One of this nursing home's strengths is registered nurse hours. We found that it offers more care from registered nurses to its residents than most facilities. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents that were able to return home from this nursing home. It fared as well as just about any nursing home in the nation with 62.9 percent of its residents returning home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Adding to this facility's impressive resume, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Inspection grades account for several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this category tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. This nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to patient safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Among its many impressive grades, this facility received an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A in that category. Our nursing rating features several subcategories. The most important factor is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. This place provides an incredible 4.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Out of that total, many of the hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the most highly highly trained levels of nurses. On top of offering high levels of care, this place also performed well in several of the quality measures we looked at. In terms of the percentage of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, this place performed better than the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last area we analyzed is long-term care, in which this nursing home was given a grade of B-. Although this turned out to be its worst category rating, this is still not a bad grade. Our long-term care scores are more critical for individuals in need of more traditional services related to personal care. In addition to patient-friendly nursing hour statistics, this facility's vaccination record is favorable as well. In fact, it vaccinated 99.4382 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This combination proved to be effective as this nursing home keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
