Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In addition to receiving a strong overall score, this facility performed well in short-term care. We awarded it an A for that category, which is one of our highest grades. Short-term care grades are generally employed to score a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally must feature better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.5 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Grade: A

This facility really excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Nursing scores are heavily correlated with levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 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 nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of turning a resident more frequently.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This nursing home also received favorable government inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better grades in that category, with a grade of B. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this category tend to have very few severe deficiencies. This place received 8 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to patient health or safety. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next category we rated is long-term care. In this category, we gave this facility a solid grade of C. This ended up being this facility's worst area. Our long-term care grades are critical for residents in need of personal care. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 99.23372 percent of its residents. This facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
