Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for its nursing grade. Our nursing rating weighs many datapoints, many of which are associated with levels of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.5 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 often be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of turning residents even once per day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home fared well in the category of short-term care. As a result, we gave it a grade of A- for that area, which turns out to be one of our best grades. In the area of short-term care, we seek to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. 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 nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Another strong feature for this facility is that it excelled in the area of inspections, with a B in that category. It outperformed most facilities in this area. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area typically have very few severe deficiencies. This nursing home received 9 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to create an immediate risk to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we graded is long-term care. This facility was given a very good long-term care rating in our assessment, with a grade of B-. Although this wasn't nearly as elite as many of its other scores, this is nevertheless an acceptable grade for this area. With our long-term care grade, we analyze the amount of care provided by a facility, along with a few qualitative statistics. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. We were optimistic to discover that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This facility also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
