Facilities that receive favorable grades in this category have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few relatively minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Finally, we also assessed 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 nation 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 protocol of moving patients more often.

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's third highest area turned out to be short-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a B-.

In doing so, we analyze the nursing home's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. It does not look like this facility submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. Finally, we looked at the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually well below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last category we graded is long-term care. We gave this nursing home a grade of C in that area. In the area of long-term care, we analyze the quantity of care provided by a facility, rather than more healthcare-oriented services. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility vaccinated 99.44444 percent of its residents, which is a very solid figure. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
