Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home's nursing score was more impressive than its overall grade. Due to a strong performance in this category, it earned one of our better scores in nursing with a grade of B+. Nursing scores are based in large part on quality and quantity of nursing care. This facility provided 0.4 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 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 by having a protocol of moving residents more often.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This facility's second best category grade came in the area of government inspections. In that area, we gave this nursing home a B. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This facility was assessed 9 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to be an immediate threat to patient health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this facility's better category scores came in the category of long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B. When facilities receive this kind of score in this category it is usually a good sign for patient care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. One of the criteria we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. This is a great way to minimize unnecessary hospitalizations for the nursing home population. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last area we rated was short-term care. For this category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of C. In forming these short-term care ratings, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to devise a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. It does not appear that this nursing home provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The last measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
