Nurse Quality

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our nursing rating. There are a host of criteria included in this grade. Many of these subcategories reflect levels of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures 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 nursing home the country 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 having a system of moving residents even once per day.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition, this nursing home also earned a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that area with a score of A. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this area typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also wanted to point out the fact that this nursing home was given a dominant grade of A- in our short-term care area. Short-term care ratings are critical for individuals in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a broad spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The final category we assessed was this nursing home's poorest area. However, even its lowest point would be a highlight for many facilities. We awarded it an above average grade of B for long-term care. Facilities that receive this kind of score in this category typically provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure residents are kept in good health. On top of considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 99.71347 percent of its patients. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents out of the hospital. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
