Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

To pair with its strong overall score, this facility earned a B+ for its short-term care rating. This is an above average grade in this category. In our short-term care grade, we seek to create a sound measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at a facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final statistic we assessed in this area is the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 5.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

We also want to emphasize this facility's nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of B+ in this category. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This facility is also strong in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. Our nursing category is based on several components, most of which are tied to nursing hours. This nursing home averages 0.6 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 place the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by having a policy of moving a resident more frequently.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last area we analyzed is long-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in that area. This is not a bad grade in this area. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. After we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. We were optimistic to learn that this facility vaccinates 98.70968 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
