Nurse Quality

Grade: A

To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home an A for our nursing grade. The nursing score analyzes many subcategories, many of which are based on nursing hours. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics 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 generally be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of moving residents even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Additionally, this facility also received favorable long-term care scores this year. In fact, we gave them one of our better grades in that category, with a score of B+. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care scores. One of the statistics we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 85.51137 percent of its patients. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This nursing home also earned favorable government inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better scores in that category, with a B. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite minor. This facility was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to resident safety or health. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next area we scored is short-term care, in which this nursing home received a grade of B. This facility proved to be relatively strong across the board. Our short-term care grade is often employed to score a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to provide highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
