Nurse Quality

Grade: A

One of the reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an A. Our nursing grade consists of quite a few datapoints, however, the most important one is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home averages 0.3 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 generally be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of turning patients at least once a day.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this facility also excelled in inspections, where it received an B+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are quite insignificant. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility is also above average in the area of short-term care, where it received a grade of B. It performed better than most facilities in this area. Short-term care grades are meaningful for residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a broad range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last item we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final area we analyzed is long-term care, where this nursing home received a grade of B-. This actually turned out to be this nursing home's weakest area. This is nevertheless nothing to be ashamed of. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 72.64957 percent of its patients. This is quite a bit lower than average. On a more positive note, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
