Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

This facility also received an A+ for its long-term care grade. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it generally means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. One of the criteria we considered in addition to this nursing home's above average nursing hours is vaccinations. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccines are a great way to avoid unnecessary deaths for the elderly. The last datapoint we looked at was its hospitalization rate. We found that this place had 3.48 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. While this admittedly wasn't as favorable as most of its other scores in this area, this figure can be skewed for some facilities based on the medical complexity of patients.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

The third category we looked at is short-term care. This nursing home performed well in our short-term care category also. We awarded them an exemplary grade of A+ in this area. In computing our short-term care grades, we size up a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other licensed professionals. This rating is more often than not a solid measure of a facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. When we assessed this facility's nursing hours, we found it offered substantially more care from registered nurses than most nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents that were able to return home from this facility. We found that it fared as well as just about any facility in the country in this area with 74.2 percent of its residents returning home. Most nursing homes are below 50 percent in this metric.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

Switching gears to our final area, this nursing home also was awarded an A+ nursing rating, making it one of the few of nursing homes to achieve straight A+'s. Nursing ratings are mostly based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home boasts a really impressive 5.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day, of which a significant percentage was provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. On top of offering high levels of nursing care, this place also excelled in several of the quality-based metrics we looked at. With under five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the country in this category.
