Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall score, we gave this nursing home a grade of A for short-term care. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a broad spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 6.6 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition, this facility also received a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it earned one of our best grades in that category with an A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite insignificant. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also was strong in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a score of A-. Only a select group of nursing homes received a better grade in this area. Facilities that do well in this category typically provide patients with closer supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 99.72752 percent of its residents. This is a reliable method to avoid negative health outcomes for the nursing home population. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

In our final area, we awarded this facility an A for our nursing rating. This wrapped up an elite profile. There are many factors within this grade. Many of these criteria relate to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this place 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 nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of moving residents at least once a day.
