Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

It should also be noted that this facility's nursing score outpaced its overall rating. We awarded it a B+ for its nursing score, which is one of our better scores. Our nursing rating analyzes a handful of components, many of which are associated with nursing hours. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this place 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 state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as having a policy of turning patients more often.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

It should also be noted that this facility's inspection grade was strong as well. We gave it a grade of B for inspections, which is one of our better scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are relatively insignificant. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's next most favorable category turned out to be short-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a C. Our short-term care scores are important for individuals requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional skilled nursing. This means a broad spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the average facility. The hope is that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. The last statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last category we graded is long-term care. For this category, we awarded this nursing home a C. For patients seeking a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. After we finished looking at the quantity of nursing care, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. We were pleased to discover that this facility vaccinates 96 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
