Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

In addition to being a quality facility overall, this facility excelled in the area of short-term care, where it received an impressive grade of A-. Short-term care scores are based on the facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a wide spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.2 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

In addition, this facility earned top notch government inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better grades in that category, with an A-. Our inspection ratings are based on many pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this area have very 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. While this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Another strong feature for this facility is that it received an impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B. The nursing score is based on a variety of factors. The most important variable is the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. 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 typically 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: B-minus

The next area we graded was long-term care, in which this facility received a grade of B-. This proved to be this facility's worst area. This is still not a terrible score. In the category of long-term care, we look at the quantity of care offered by a facility, rather than more sophisticated services. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. This facility also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
