The main reason this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an elite nursing grade. In fact, we gave this facility a grade of A-. Our nursing score assesses several subcategories, but the paramount consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed certain nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these areas as good indicators of the quality of nursing care provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Historical

This facility's third best category grade came in the area of government inspections. In that category, we gave this facility a B. It actually outperformed most nursing homes in this category. Our inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this category typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to resident safety or health. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Historical

This facility's weakest category was long-term care, which is the last area we analyzed. For this area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of just D. Facilities that receive this type of grade in long-term care likely don't provide the kind of consistent 24/7 care that some other nursing homes provide. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 91.489365 percent of its patients. This is slightly below what we were hoping for but still a respectable percentage. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
