Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home an A for our long-term care rating. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

In addition, this nursing home also earned a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with an A-. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. 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.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Our nursing rating features a number of factors. The most heavily weighted variable is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of turning a resident more frequently.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

The final area we analyzed is short-term care, where this nursing home received an A-. This wrapped up a very impressive report card. Few nursing homes earned an A- or better in in each area we assessed. Our short-term care ratings are considered to be more critical for patients needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this facility provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who returned home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
