Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility excelled in our nursing rating. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Our nursing grade is based on a variety of factors. The most important factor is the amount of time nurses spend with patients. This facility provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures 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 frequently be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as having a policy of moving a resident more often.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its fine resume, this facility also received a strong short-term care score, with a grade of A-. In computing our short-term care scores, we size up a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This category is frequently a fair measure of a nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last measure we considered in this area is the percentage of patients 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-plus

This nursing home is also strong in the area of long-term care, where it received a score of B+. It performed better than most facilities in this category. Nursing homes that excel in this category tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccinations. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 99.49495 percent of its patients. This is a great way to avoid unnecessary deaths for the elderly population. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Turning to our inspection category, it appears this nursing home has received quality government inspections in recent years as well. We gave it a B in this category. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple relatively minor dings aren't necessarily something to panic about.
