Compounding its top-shelf performance in other areas, we gave this facility a grade of A- for its long-term care score. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. On the whole this looks like a solid option in terms of its long-term care rating.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility was given an impressive short-term care grade as well. We gave it one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B+. Short-term care ratings are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a wide range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We weren't able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Switching gears to our next area, this nursing home also excelled in the nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a B+ for this category. This finalized a very strong report card. The nursing score includes several factors. The most important one is the number of hours nurses spent with patients. This particular nursing home provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures 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 country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as having a policy of turning residents more frequently.
