Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this facility received an excellent long-term care grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A in that category. For prospective patients in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 18.4 percent of its residents. This is slightly below what we anticipated. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its first-rate achievements in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for its short-term care grade. Our short-term care grades are crucial for individuals looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a vast range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final metric we considered in this category is the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that 6.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its strong resume, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with a grade of A. Our nursing grade looks at the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of skill of the nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of moving a patient more frequently.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This facility has received near flawless government inspections in recent years. We gave them an A- in this category. This is one of the few facilities in the state to receive an A- or better in every single category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. This facility received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies to be an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
