Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this nursing home fared well in short-term care. We awarded it an A- for that category. In computing these short-term care grades, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to create a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that 5.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

In addition, this facility also earned top notch health inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better grades in that area, with a grade of A-. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report, which is still very impressive. A single deficiency isn't the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another strong feature for this facility is that it received an impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B+. The nursing score consists of quite a few subcategories, many of which are associated with nursing hours. This nursing home averages 0.3 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 place the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of moving a patient even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final area we looked at is long-term care, which turned out to be this facility's weakest area. We gave this facility a grade of D in this category. Naturally, this grade pulled down the facility's overall profile to a certain degree. For prospective patients seeking a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. We were pleased to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 95.55556 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility also keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
