Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home received a solid overall grade as described above, but it really excelled in nursing care, with an impressive grade of A- in this category. The nursing category assesses several components, most of which are tied to quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0 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 country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a system of moving residents more often.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility also received a favorable short-term care grade. As a matter of fact, we awarded it a B in that area, which is one of our better. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. We were not able to find information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This nursing home also received a very favorable inspection grade. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last category we assessed was long-term care. We gave this nursing home a C in that category. Long-term care grades focus on a nursing home's assistance with daily living instead of the highly skilled nursing or healthcare services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. We were disappointed to learn that this facility vaccinated just 60.614525 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
