Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a first rate facility overall, this facility also excelled in the category of nursing, where it received an A+. Few nursing homes fared better in this area. When determining our nursing grades, we factor in both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This facility boasts a really impressive 5.1 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. This is among the highest totals of nursing hours we found. In addition to providing high levels of nursing care, this facility also excelled in the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed as well as any nursing home in the state when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

This facility also received an A+ inspection grade, making it one of the rare facilities to receive multiple A+'s in our category grades. This score is based on the nursing home's government inspections. Arguably the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Moving on our third area, we awarded this facility a score of A for our short-term care rating. This is a first-rate score. Our short-term care scores are probably more important for folks in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. This place provides more services with physical therapists and registered nurses than most facilities we looked at. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of nursing homes with 59.1 percent of its residents returning home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next area we scored was long-term care. In this category, we awarded this nursing home a favorable grade of B. When facilities receive this kind of score in long-term care it is usually a good sign for patient care and suggests that the facility is well-staffed with nurses aids. In addition to really impressive nursing hour statistics, this nursing home's vaccination record was superb also. In fact, this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This combination proved to be successful as this place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
