Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a quality nursing home overall, this nursing home really excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A+. Few facilities performed better in this area. Our nursing grade is based on a number of subcategories. The most important one is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics 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 facility the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a system of turning residents more frequently.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

Among this nursing home's other accomplishments is its high-end short-term care grade. We awarded them one of our most impressive scores in that area, with a grade of A+. In forming our short-term care grades, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to create a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of patients that ultimately returned home from this nursing home. We found that 7.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's third best category ended up being its long-term care score, where it was given a grade of B-. In the area of long-term care, we focus more on the amount of care offered by a facility, rather than more medically-intensive services. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 97.297295 percent of its patients for pneumonia. This facility also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

Finally, turning to inspections, we gave this nursing home a C. Our inspection rating is based on the nursing home's government inspections. While this is not a bad score, it is this nursing home's weakest area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some are quite minor. This facility had 9 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were in category J, K or L. This tells you that inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to put resident health or safety in immediate harm or jeopardy. At the end of the day, this inspection report certainly could have been worse.
