Nurse Quality

Grade: A

On top of performing well in its overall score, this nursing home received even higher grades in the area of nursing. In fact, we gave it one of our highest scores in this category with an A. Our nursing score weighs quite a few datapoints, but the main consideration is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this place 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 having a policy of moving a resident more frequently.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

We also wanted to emphasize this facility's nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A- in this category. Inspection scores are tied to many datapoints found on the a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this area tend to have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next most favorable category ended up being short-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of B-. Our short-term care scores are thought to be most meaningful for residents requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to our final category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D in long-term care. This is the facility's least impressive category grade. Sadly, this category pulled down the nursing home's overall profile a bit. For prospective patients in need of a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. Once we concluded our assessment of the volume of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. We were optimistic to find that this nursing home vaccinates 99.1228 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
