Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

One of the reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received a very impressive short-term care score. This proved to be its best category. In that area, we awarded this facility an impressive grade of A. Our short-term care grades are vital for prospective residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients that returned home from this nursing home. We found that 6.4 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Among its many impressive grades, this facility received an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A in that category. The nursing grade includes numerous subcategories. The most heavily weighted variable is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this nursing home 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 many times be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a system of moving patients more frequently.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Racking up another strong category grade, this facility also excelled in inspections, where it received an impressive grade of A-. Few facilities performed better in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively minor. This facility received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to create an immediate risk to resident safety or health. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last area we scored is long-term care. We awarded this nursing home an acceptable score in that area, with a B-. While this wasn't as dominant as several of its other scores, it is nevertheless not a poor grade. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is more than most nursing homes. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
