Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to a phenomenal overall grade, this facility also received A+ nursing grade. The nursing score analyzes several components, however, the paramount one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as having a system of moving a patient more frequently.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We also would like to emphasize the fact that this facility was given an impressive grade of A in our short-term care area. In our short-term care grade, we attempt to create a meaningful measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess a facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 5.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home has received near flawless inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this area. Inspection grades account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category usually have few of these severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Switching gears to the last category, this facility was awarded a very strong long-term care grade. Although this isn't as dominant as many of its other scores, this is nevertheless one of the stronger grades a facility can receive. Facilities that receive this type of score in long-term care tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure residents are kept in good health. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 98.34711 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is too frequently a life threatening health condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a nursing home does not take any chances. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
