Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

In addition to having a decent overall score, we also wanted to note that this facility received favorable nursing marks this year. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. This proved to be the facility's top grade. When calculating our nursing ratings, we weigh both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of the nurses. This nursing home averages 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 place the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by having a policy of moving a resident more frequently.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also performed well in the area of inspections. As a result, it received one of our best grades in that area with an B+. Our inspection ratings account for several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. While this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor dings aren't necessarily something to panic about.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The third area we graded was short-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a decent grade of B-. Short-term care grades are typically used to judge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation To have highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide higher levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 3.5 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Turning to our next area, this facility received an acceptable long-term care score of C. Our long-term care scores are more meaningful for people requiring more traditional assistance associated with personal care. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
