Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

One of the reasons this place received a great overall grade is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we gave this nursing home an A-. Nursing grades are largely associated with a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this facility 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 nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a system of turning residents more frequently.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility also received a favorable short-term care score. Indeed, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this area. Our short-term care ratings are critical for prospective residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final statistic we considered in this category is the number of patients that were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This facility also received impressive inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our higher grades in that category, with a B. Arguably the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. We weren't able to find deficiency data for this facility. Without having the deficiency data for this nursing home, it ended up being difficult to evaluate it in this area.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Moving on to the fourth area, this nursing home received an acceptable long-term care grade of B-. Our long-term care grade is commonly used to judge a facility's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services provided by a skilled nursing facility. After looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. We weren't able to track down this place's vaccination data. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
