Nurse Quality

Grade: A

On top of receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home also received an excellent nursing score, with an A. Nursing ratings are tied to quantity of nursing care available. This facility provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility 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 nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of moving a patient even once per day.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Adding to its impressive category grades, this nursing home also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively minor. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down deficiency counts for this nursing home. We would like to have more information about this nursing home. Without having all of the information regarding deficiencies, it ended up being difficult to evaluate this nursing home in this area.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Turning to the next area, this nursing home also received a grade of B for its short-term care rating. This is a well above average score in this category. Our short-term care grades are vital for patients requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a wide spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final measure we looked at in this area is the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The final category we graded was long-term care. We awarded this facility one of our higher scores in that area, with a grade of B. Even though this is not as high as many of this facility's other grades, it is still a positive score. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours was vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 75 percent of its patients. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
