Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

On top of earning a great overall grade, this nursing home really excelled in nursing, where it received an A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. In determining our nursing scores, we weigh both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics 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 facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of moving a resident more frequently.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's second highest category is its long-term care grade, where it was given a B-. For prospective residents seeking a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients, which is more than most nursing homes. This nursing home keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility's third most favorable category is short-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a C. In the area of short-term care, we try to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical facility. The hope is that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. The final metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 2.7 percent of this facility's patients returned home. This figure was below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

The last category we assessed is inspections. The facility received a grade of C in this category. We believe that one of the most critical factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially look at the severity of those deficiencies. This nursing home had 8 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were category J through L deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to put resident health or safety in imminent harm or jeopardy. Overall, this inspection could have been much worse.
