Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home really excelled in the category of short-term care, where it received an A. Few facilities performed better in this category. If it was not for this grade, this facility's overall score would have been much lower. In the category of short-term care, we try to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.5 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This facility's second best category grade came in the area of government inspections. In that area, we gave this facility a B. It actually outperformed most nursing homes in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite minor. While this place had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A couple relatively minor dings aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

We also awarded this facility a favorable grade in nursing. This facility earned a grade of B in this category, which is one of our better grades. We analyzed the qualifications of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the quantity of hours those nurses worked with patients, in determining our grade in this category. This facility provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures 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 facility the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by having a system of moving a patient even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final area we rated is long-term care, which turned out to be this facility's worst category. It received an abysmal F for this category, which is clearly a major disappointment. For prospective residents in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 96.428566 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is better than most nursing homes. Surprisingly, this facility also keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
