Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a strong facility overall, this nursing home also excelled at short-term care, where it received an A+. With our short-term care grade, we seek to craft a valuable gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess a facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. One reason for this facility's strong score in this category is that it provides more care with registered nurses to its residents than the average nursing home. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return home from this nursing home. It outperformed the vast majority of nursing homes with 70.1 percent of its residents returning home.

Nurse Quality

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. Our nursing rating is primarily tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This place provides an incredible 7.7 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. Very few nursing homes provide this quantity of nursing care to their patients. Out of that total, many of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the more highly trained levels of nurses. On top of offering impressive levels of nursing care, this facility also performed well in several of the quality-based metrics we assessed. By way of illustration, in terms of the number of its patients suffering falls leading to serious injury, this nursing home performed as well as any facility the nation. Preventing serious falls is typically an indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This nursing home also received excellent inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our best grades in that category, with an A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are relatively insignificant. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

In the final category we graded, this facility was awarded an impressive grade grade of A- in our long-term care category. With this score, the facility rounded out a straight A report card. Nursing homes that excel in this category typically provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. After assessing the significant amount of nursing hours and other staffing provided by this nursing home, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 97.5 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is much higher than most nursing homes. This combination proved to be successful as this nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
