Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Part of the reason this facility performed so well overall is that it excelled in nursing, with a B+ in that area. It outperformed most nursing homes here. Nursing ratings are heavily correlated with quality and quantity of nursing care. This facility provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at 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 state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of turning a patient more often.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

We also want to emphasize this facility's nearly flawless inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of B+ in this area. Inspection scores are based on several items located in the a nursing home's government inspections. Places that receive favorable grades in this area tend to have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to our third area, this nursing home also earned a grade of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is an above average score in this area. Our short-term care grade is generally employed to grade a facility's performance with rehabilitation In order to provide highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally must provide better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next area we rated is long-term care, where this nursing home received a B. This nursing home proved to be relatively strong in each area we assessed. For long-term care residents, the primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 85.54502 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is slightly below what we expected but still a respectable figure. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
