Nurse Quality

Grade: A

On top of earning a great overall grade, this facility also received an elite nursing rating. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of A. We assessed the levels of nurses working for the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of hours the nurses spent with patients, in computing our grade in this area. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this nursing home 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 state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as having a policy of turning patients even once per day.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition, this facility also received top notch inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with an A. Inspection scores account for several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category generally have very few severe deficiencies. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home received an impressive short-term care score as well. We awarded it one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B+. Our short-term care grades are vital for residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a vast scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next area we graded is long-term care, which is a low point for this nursing home. We awarded this nursing home a D in long-term care, leaving this as the facility's worst area. We'd nevertheless recommend that you consider all of a facility's category grades. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it generally means the facility didn't perform well in our quality measures relating to resident care. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. We were a bit concerned this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to only 74.1573 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
