Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a first rate facility overall, this nursing home also fared well in long-term care, where it received an A+. Few facilities fared better in this area. For patients in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 92.92036 percent of its residents, which is slightly below what we were hoping for. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

The next category we looked at was inspections, where this facility also received an A+ grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Arguably the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Although this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

This first-rate facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A+. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Our nursing grade is based on several datapoints, most of which are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.5 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 nursing home the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as having a system of moving a resident even once per day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Turning to our fourth category, this nursing home was given a strong short-term care grade. In fact, we awarded it an A- in that area, resulting in this facility receiving straight A's. In the area of short-term care, we strive to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
