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. The nursing score weighs a number of factors. The most heavily weighted factor 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 measures 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 state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of moving a resident at least once a day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its top-shelf resume, this facility also excelled in our short-term care area. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- in the area. Our short-term care ratings are arguably most critical for residents in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually requires more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not only nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Moving on to our inspection category, this nursing home excelled in that category, which is based on the facility's recent government inspection reports. In fact, we gave it an impressive grade of A- for that category. Inspection scores are tied to many items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that receive favorable grades in this area typically have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This facility was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In the last area, this nursing home also was given a very strong long-term care score, with a grade of B+. This rounded out a very favorable profile. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 97.916664 percent of its residents. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients healthy. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
