Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this place received a great overall grade is that it received an A+ short-term care grade. This is as good as it gets in this area. With our short-term care grade, we endeavor to craft a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at a nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last item we considered in this area is the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that 6.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Adding to this facility's impressive resume, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This particular nursing home received 9 deficiencies on its inspection report. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Among its many impressive grades, this facility received an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A- in that category. Nursing ratings are heavily correlated with quality and quantity of nursing care. This facility provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

In the final category we assessed, this nursing home was awarded an impressive grade grade of A- in our long-term care category. With this grade, the nursing home topped off a straight A report card. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 96.81416 percent of its residents. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients out of the hospital. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
