Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our short-term care grade. With our short-term care category, we endeavor to craft a fair barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze the facility's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.3 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Among its many impressive grades, this facility received an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it an B+ in that category. Our nursing rating is primarily based on a facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at 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 place the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as having a system of moving residents more frequently.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This nursing home also earned impressive government inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better grades in that category, with a B. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This place was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to create an immediate risk to resident health or safety. A couple minor dings are not something to panic about.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next category we rated was long-term care. We gave it a C in that area. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this area. For prospective residents seeking a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. As it turns out, this nursing home provided the vaccine to just 82.10526 percent of its residents, which is several points lower than we expected. On a more positive note, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
