Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

On top of being a quality nursing home overall, this facility really excelled in nursing, where it received an A-. The nursing score includes quite a few components, many of which are tied to quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0 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 place the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as having a system of moving residents at least once a day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home was given a strong short-term care grade as well. We gave it one of our higher scores in that category with a grade of B. Our short-term care grade is generally used to score a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to have high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature better levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. We were not able to locate information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last measure we looked at in this area is the number of residents that returned home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Turning to our next area, this nursing home also received a score of B for its long-term care rating. This is a well above average grade in this area. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. After we finished assessing the amount of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 92.028984 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. 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

Finally, we also awarded this facility a B- for our inspections rating. This facility didn't have any real weak links. We would argue that one of the most important factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially look at the severity of those deficiencies. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we were able to find deficiency data for this nursing home. We wish we had more information about this nursing home. Without having all of the deficiency related data, it ended up being challenging to fully evaluate it in terms of this category.
