Among its many impressive grades, this facility received an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A- in that category. Nursing ratings are mostly associated with a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this facility 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 typically be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a system of moving patients at least once a day.

Grade: B-plus

The third area we assessed was long-term care. This facility received a very positive long-term care grade, with a B+ in this category.

Vaccines are vital 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 only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Switching gears to the fourth category, this nursing home received a very strong short-term care rating. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B+ in this category, topping off one of our finer profiles. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final statistic we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
