Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this facility fared well in short-term care. In fact, we awarded it an impressive grade of A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. In computing our short-term care grades, we size up the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. This score is considered to be a fair assessment of the nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last measure we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 6.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

In addition, this facility excelled in inspections, where it received an A-. Inspection ratings are tied to pieces of information found on the a nursing home's government inspections. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this category tend to have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This means that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another strong feature for this facility is that it received an impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B+. The nursing score consists of many components, but the main consideration is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.4 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 nursing home 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 employing a protocol of turning a resident at least once a day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final category we scored is long-term care. We gave this nursing home a decent score in this area, with a B-. Even though this is not as favorable as a few of this facility's other scores, it is nevertheless not the end of the world. For prospective residents in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. We were pleased to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. This nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
