Nursing homes that score well in this area typically have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This place received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to patient safety or health. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Adding to this nursing home's list of strengths, it also received an excellent nursing grade. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this category. Our nursing grade is mostly tied to the facility's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home 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 protocol of moving a resident more frequently.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility performed well in our short-term care category also. Consequently, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which turns out to be one of our most elite grades. Short-term care grades are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. We were pleased to find that this nursing home employs both registered nurses and physical therapists. The same can't be said for all nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.3 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last area we rated is long-term care. We gave this facility a decent grade in that category, with a grade of C. While this was not as favorable as several of this nursing home's other scores, it is nevertheless a middle of the pack score. In the category of long-term care, we focus on the quantity of services provided by a nursing home, as opposed to more healthcare-oriented services. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We were not able to find information on vaccination rates. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
