Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded this facility an A- for short-term care. Short-term care grades are often used to measure a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To provide highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 5.3 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Among its many impressive scores, this facility earned an excellent nursing score. We gave it an B+ in that category. Nursing scores are mostly associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at 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 facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a protocol of moving a resident more often.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The third category we assessed is long-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a B-. For patients in need of a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility gave the vaccine to 97.254906 percent of its residents, which is an above average datapoint. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Turning to the last category we assessed, this facility received a decent grade in inspections as well. We gave it a grade of B- for that category. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to patient safety or health. A few relatively minor dings aren't the end of the world.
