Nurse Quality

Grade: A

In addition to being a quality nursing home overall, this facility really excelled in nursing, where it received an A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Our nursing grade is primarily tied to a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics 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 typically be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as employing a system of moving a resident at least once a day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility was given impressive grades in the category of short-term care as well. In fact, we awarded it one of our most superb grades in that category with a area of A-. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 5.4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Moving on to another of this nursing home's strengths, it also received a very impressive inspection rating. In that area, we gave this facility an impressive grade of B+. Inspection scores are tied to several items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this category have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This particular nursing home received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we graded is long-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F for this category, which is a rock bottom grade. We wouldn't necessarily rule out a facility due to one terrible category though. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. After assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 92.23744 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be a bit lower than we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
