Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

On top of performing well in its overall score, this nursing home earned even higher grades in nursing. In fact, we gave it one of our best grades in this category with a grade of A-. The nursing grade includes a host of subcategories. The most heavily weighted variable is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. This particular nursing home 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 state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by having a policy of moving a resident at least once a day.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

We also wanted to emphasize this nursing home's nearly flawless government inspections recently. We awarded them an B+ in this area. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category usually have few severe deficiencies. While this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

The third category we assessed is short-term care. This nursing home was given a very positive short-term care score, with a B+ in this area. Our short-term care ratings are based on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a wide range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last area we rated was long-term care. In this category, we gave this facility a solid grade of B-. This ended up being this nursing home's worst category. Long-term care grades are generally used to grade a nursing home's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing more on the skilled nursing services offered by a rehabilitation facility. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccinations. Thankfully, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
