Nurse Quality

Grade: A

In addition to being a quality nursing home overall, this nursing home really excelled in nursing, where it received an A. Our nursing score is based on a number of factors. The most heavily weighted one is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. This nursing home provides 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 place the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of turning a patient at least once a day.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition, this facility also excelled in inspections, where it earned an A. Few nursing homes performed as well in this category. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next area we graded was short-term care. This nursing home received an impressive short-term care grade, with a grade of B in the category. Our short-term care scores are likely most important for individuals in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 4.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we rated was this facility's worst category. Nevertheless, even in its worst category we still gave it a respectable grade of B- for our long-term care category. In computing our long-term care scores, we size up the personal care offered to a facility's residents. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We discovered that this facility administered the vaccine to a relatively low 89.750694 percent of its residents, which is well below average. Nevertheless, this nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
