Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We also wanted to emphasize that this facility received an impressive grade of A for short-term care. Our short-term care ratings are vital for individuals requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a wide range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from this nursing home. We found that 6.6 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an A. There are many subcategories within this grade. Most of the datapoints relate to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed 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 facility the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of turning a patient even once per day.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Another impressive feature of this facility is its inspection score. In that area, we gave this facility an A-. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This facility was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to resident safety or health. A few relatively minor dings aren't the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to the next area, this nursing home also performed admirably in our long-term care category. We awarded it a B+ in this category. This finalized a very impressive report card. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 99.68553 percent of its patients, which is significantly higher than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
