Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home's nursing grade outpaced its overall rating. In fact, we awarded it a B for its nursing score. The nursing score includes a handful of subcategories, however, the most important one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures 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 facility the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by having a policy of moving patients more frequently.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility also received a positive score in our short-term care category. We awarded this nursing home a better than average grade of B in that area. Our short-term care grades are arguably more meaningful for residents requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not just nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. It doesn't appear that this facility submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The last item we considered in this category is the number of patients that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that 5.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This nursing home also earned a very favorable inspection grade. In that area, we gave this facility a B. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area generally have few severe deficiencies. While this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Turning to our final category, this facility was given an acceptable long-term care score of C. For prospective residents looking for a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. This place keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
