Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a first rate nursing home overall, this nursing home also excelled in the category of nursing, where it received an A+. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. We weighed the qualifications of nurses at the facility, as well as the quantity of hours those nurses worked with patients, in calculating our rating in this category. This nursing home averages 0.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Adding to its impressive category grades, this facility also excelled in the category of inspections, where it earned an A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. This place was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple relatively minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also received a fine short-term care grade. In fact, this ended up being this nursing home's third strongest category score. In that area, this facility received a score of A. In our short-term care score, we endeavor to forge a fair gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze a nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The final category we looked at is long-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a grade of B. Although this proved to be its weakest category grade, this is nevertheless a quality rating. Facilities that excel in this category tend to provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. On top of considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 99.73753 percent of its residents, which is much higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
