Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this facility excelled at short-term care. In fact, we awarded it an A for that category. Our short-term care ratings are believed to be more critical for residents requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final measure we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that 7.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Adding to its impressive category scores, this nursing home excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A. Not many nursing homes performed better in this area. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that we were able to find information on deficiency's for this nursing home. Without all of the deficiency data for this facility, it was difficult to evaluate it in the inspections category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also received a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A-. The nursing grade is based on a number of datapoints. The most important variable is the amount of time nurses spend with residents. This nursing home provides 0.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at 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 place the country 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 employing a system of turning patients more frequently.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The final area we rated was long-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a B. While this turned out to be its weakest category grade, this is nevertheless a strong rating. For patients seeking a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 69.1358 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be a bit lower than we expected but still a respectable percentage. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
