Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

In addition to performing well in its overall score, this nursing home received even higher grades in nursing. In fact, we gave it one of our best grades in this category with an A-. Our nursing category consists of a handful of components, most of which are based on quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its impressive category grades, we gave this nursing home a grade of A- for inspections. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to the third category, this facility also received a grade of B+ for its long-term care rating. This is an above average score in this category. Facilities that do well in long-term care typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. One of the factors we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 94.81481 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a great way to avoid negative health outcomes for the aged 65 and up population. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next category we graded is short-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility an impressive grade of B. In computing our short-term care ratings, we size up the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. This area is generally a solid assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that 5.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
