Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We gave this facility an impressive grade of A- for our short-term care score. This score is much more impressive than the nursing home's overall grade. In determining our short-term care ratings, we scrutinize the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This area is often a useful measure of a nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last measure we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

We also want to emphasize this facility's nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of B+ in this category. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also received a strong grade in our nursing category. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B+ in this area. The nursing grade is based on many subcategories, most of which are based on nursing hours. This particular nursing home 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 state 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 by having a system of turning residents more frequently.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Turning to the final area, this facility really didn't fare well. Due to a very poor grade of F in long-term care, this was this facility's weakest category grade. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 97.77778 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this place also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
