Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

One of the reasons this turned out to be a great facility is that it earned a strong short-term care score. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of A. In computing our short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This score is frequently a useful measure of a facility's rehabilitation services. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This facility performed better in this area than in its staffing levels. It performed as well as just about any facility in the country with 68.9 percent of its residents returning home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its impressive category scores, this facility also excelled in the category of inspections, where it earned an A-. Few nursing homes performed as well in this area. Inspection ratings are tied to several pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspections. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this area tend to have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. In calculating a nursing home's nursing rating, we weigh the amount of time nurses spend with patients as well as the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures 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 generally be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as having a policy of turning a resident even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

The last category we graded was long-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a grade of B+. This finished off a very strong report card. Very few nursing homes earned a B+ or better in in each area we assessed. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We were not able to find information on vaccination rates. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
