In the category of short-term care, we seek to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 6.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B. In computing a facility's nursing score, we consider the quantity of hours nurses commit to patients as well as the levels of training of those nurses. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this nursing home 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 nation 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 having a protocol of turning a patient at least once a day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Moving on to the fourth category, this facility was given an acceptable long-term care grade of C. If you are looking for services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care scores. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We were a bit worried that this facility gave the vaccine to a relatively low 88 percent of its residents. Nevertheless, this nursing home excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
