Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home really excelled in the category of short-term care, where it received an A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. If it wasn't for this category, this facility's overall score would have been much lower. In the category of short-term care, we try to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. We were not able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final item we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 6.4 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This nursing home also received a very favorable inspection score. In fact, its inspection score turned out to be its second best category. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a B. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to resident safety or health. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of B-. In calculating a facility's nursing rating, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses are caring for patients as well as the levels of training of the nurses. This facility provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a somewhat discouraging figure which is well below the national average. Finally, while this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this statistic.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last category we graded was long-term care. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this area. Our long-term care ratings are more critical for patients requiring more conventional services related to activities of daily living. After we finished assessing the volume of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. We were pleased to discover that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
