Nurse Quality

Grade: A

We gave this facility one of our better scores in the area of nursing, with a grade of A. This is a notably better grade than the facility's overall score, which was decent but not in the elite range. There are a variety of factors included in this category. Many of these subcategories are tied to staffing levels. This particular nursing home 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 nursing home the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of turning a patient at least once a day.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Remarkably, this facility actually received a good grade in the area of inspections as well. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively minor. While this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next highest category we gave this nursing home in any category came in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a B-. Our short-term care ratings are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 4.5 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Switching gears to the fourth area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D in our long-term care category. This is the nursing home's weakest category rating. Unfortunately, this grade pulled down the nursing home's overall grade to a certain degree. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 97.8903 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
