Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Part of the reason this nursing home performed well overall is that it excelled in the area of nursing, with a B+ in that category. It outpaced many nursing homes here. Our nursing rating is mostly associated with the facility's level of 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 typically be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as employing a policy of moving a resident more often.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home is also above average in the category of short-term care, where it was awarded a score of B+. It performed better than most facilities in this area. Our short-term care grade is generally used to grade a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To have quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents that returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also was given a favorable long-term care grade. Indeed, we gave it an above average score of B+ in this category. Facilities that excel in this category tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is much higher than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

Turning to the final category of inspections, this was not one of this nursing home's better grades. Inspection grades are based on a facility's recent government inspection reports. We gave this nursing home a C in this category. Our inspection ratings are based on pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This nursing home had 10 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but none were in categories G through L. This means CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to create an imminent threat to resident health or safety. We really did not find anything on this nursing home's inspection reports to be overly alarming.
