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 score. In fact, nursing ended up being its best category. In that category, we awarded this facility an A. In determining our nursing ratings, we analyze both staffing levels and the training levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at 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 nursing home 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 patients at least once a day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home is also above average in the area of short-term care, where it was given a score of B+. It performed more favorably than most nursing homes in this category. In computing these short-term care ratings, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to formulate a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this nursing home submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 5.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Another strong feature for this nursing home is that it excelled in inspections, with a B in that category. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This place was hit with 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to create an imminent risk to patient safety or health. A couple relatively minor dings aren't something to panic about.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's worst area is long-term care, which is the last category we assessed. For this area, we gave this nursing home a D. Facilities that receive this type of grade in long-term care may not provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other nursing homes offer. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to a relatively low 87.790695 percent of its patients, which is somewhat alarming. Surprisingly, this facility actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
