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 often be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as having a protocol of moving a patient more often.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home received impressive marks in the category of short-term care as well. Indeed, we gave it one of our most elite scores in that area with a area of A-. In our short-term care assessment, we try to craft a sound barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess the nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy.

This facility was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to create an immediate threat to patient health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

The final category we analyzed is long-term care. This nursing home was given an above average long-term care grade this year, with a grade of B-. Even though this is not as strong as several of its other category grades, this is still an acceptable grade for this area. For prospective residents in need of a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. We were optimistic to discover that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. This nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
