Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a first-rate nursing home overall, this facility also excelled in the area of short-term care, where it received an A+. Few nursing homes fared better in this area. Our short-term care scores are presumably more important for patients needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually requires more skilled nursing. This includes not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final item we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 7.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home also earned an A+ inspection grade, making it one of the rare facilities to receive multiple A+'s in our categories. This is based on the place's recent government inspections. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Another reason we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received an A+ nursing grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. Our nursing grade assesses the facility's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of licensure of the nurses and the quantity of hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

The fourth category we graded is long-term care, where this facility was given an A. This finished off a very favorable profile. Only a select few nursing homes earned an A- or higher in each of our categories. For prospective residents seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down information about this nursing home's vaccination rates. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
