Facility Inspections

Grade: A+

In addition to being a great overall grade, this facility also received A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections were virtually flawless. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively insignificant. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its impressive resume, this nursing home also excelled in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. When determining a nursing home's nursing score, we consider the number of hours nurses are caring for residents and the level of skill of those nurses. This nursing home boasts a really impressive 4.1 hours of nursing care per resident each day, of which a significant portion of those hours were provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. On top of offering high levels of care, this facility was also above average in each of the major quality-based metrics we assessed in this category. It performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also wanted to alert you to the fact that this nursing home received a first-rate score of A- in our short-term care category. Our short-term care scores are based in part on a facility's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a vast scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. One of this place's strengths is registered nurse hours. This facility provides more care from registered nurses than most facilities. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

In the last area, this facility also was awarded a first-rate long-term care grade, with an A-. This completed a straight A report card. When facilities receive this kind of grade in this category it is a good sign for patient care and indicates that the facility is well-staffed with nurses aids. After looking at the impressive nursing care provided by this facility, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is significantly higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. This combination proved to be successful as this facility keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.33 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
