Nurse Quality

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our nursing grade. We looked at the levels of nurses employed by the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of time those nurses were with patients, in calculating our score in this area. This nursing home averages 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 nursing home the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as employing a policy of turning a resident even once per day.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its impressive category grades, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite minor. This particular nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home really excelled in the category of long-term care, where it received a score of A-. Very few facilities performed better in this area. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are kept in good health. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 59.545456 percent of its residents. This is somewhat less than we were hoping for. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, at least this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next category we assessed was short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a solid score in this area, with a C. Even though this was not as dominant as some of this facility's other grades, it is nevertheless not a bad grade. In our short-term care rating, we attempt to create a valuable gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze the nursing home's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure was below average.
