Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down deficiency counts for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also received a strong long-term care grade. Indeed, this ended up being this facility's second strongest category score. In that area, we gave this facility a score of A. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. After looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 96.61017 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also received a strong nursing score. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this area. Nursing grades are largely associated with the facility's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 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 frequently be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as having a protocol of turning residents more often.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The final category we looked at was short-term care. This nursing home received a very good nursing rating this year, with a grade of B. While this wasn't nearly as impressive as some of its other grades, this is still one of the more favorable scores in this area. In the area of short-term care, we seek to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
