Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In addition to being a quality facility overall, this nursing home really excelled in the area of short-term care, where it received an A. Few facilities fared better in this category. Short-term care grades are generally employed to measure a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must offer better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who returned home from the facility. We found that 6.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Adding to this nursing home's list of strengths, it also received an excellent nursing grade. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. Our nursing rating is based on a variety of subcategories. The most important one is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this nursing home 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 country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a system of turning a resident at least once a day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also awarded this facility a score of A- for our long-term care score. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care typically are well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. Once we finished looking at the quantity of nursing care, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 96 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia tragically can be a life or death condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Moving on to inspections, it appears this nursing home has received quality government inspections in recent years as well. We gave it a B- in this category. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.
