Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to emphasize that this nursing home earned near flawless health inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Inspection grades account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this category typically have very few severe deficiencies. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

Another reason we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received an A+ nursing grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. Nursing scores are mostly tied to a nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

Another strength for this facility is short-term care, where it received an A+ score. This is simply as elite as it gets in this area. In computing our short-term care scores, we look at a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. This rating is typically a solid assessment of the facility's rehabilitation services. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

The last area we scored was long-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a grade of A. This rounded out a very impressive report card. Only a select few nursing homes received an A- or higher in every category. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in this category it is typically a good sign for patient care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is much higher than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping 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.
