Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

To pair with its strong overall score, we awarded this nursing home an A for short-term care. Short-term care grades are often used to judge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To have high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide better levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 6.1 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Among this facility's other strengths is its elite nursing grade. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of A. Our nursing score is primarily associated with the facility's nurse staffing. This facility provided 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 place the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a policy of turning patients more frequently.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Moving on to another of this facility's strengths, it also earned a very impressive inspection score. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an impressive grade of A-. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last area we graded is long-term care, which ended up being this nursing home's weakest area. We awarded this facility a D in this area. However, we would not assess this facility based only on a single weak category, since it was awarded some excellent grades in other areas. If you are looking for anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care ratings. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccines. Thankfully, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 93.97591 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this place also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
