Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

In addition to being a quality nursing home overall, this facility excelled at short-term care, where it earned an A-. Few nursing homes fared better in this category. In the category of short-term care, we strive to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. We were not able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Turning to another one of this place's strengths, it also received a very impressive inspection grade. In fact, inspections proved to be one of its best category grades. In that area, we awarded this facility an A-. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to patient health or safety. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also was given a favorable long-term care grade. Indeed, we gave it an above average grade of B in this area. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours was vaccines. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 98.55073 percent of its patients. This is a proven method to minimize unnecessary deaths for the senior population. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The final category we looked at is nursing. We gave this nursing home a grade of C in that category. There are numerous subcategories included in this category. Many of the criteria reflect the quantity of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, we also assessed several nursing quality measures. While this place got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of these quality metrics. With less than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this area. This is generally an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of moving residents at least once a day.
