Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to a phenomenal overall grade, this facility also received A+ nursing grade. We weighed the skill-level of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the quantity of hours those nurses worked with patients, in computing our rating in this area. This particular nursing home provided 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its first-rate profile, this facility also was awarded a dominant long-term care grade, with a grade of A. Facilities that do well in this category tend to provide residents with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. Once we concluded our assessment of the amount of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 99.58763 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly is often a dangerous condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't take any chances. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Tallying yet another strong category grade, this nursing home also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an impressive grade of A. Few nursing homes fared better in this category. Inspection scores are based on many pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that excel in this category typically have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Switching gears to the fourth category, this nursing home also excelled in the short-term care category. In fact, we gave it an A- for that category. This wrapped up truly elite report card. In forming our short-term care ratings, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to formulate a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
