Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home received a solid overall grade as described above, but it really excelled in nursing care, with an impressive grade of A- in this category. In computing a nursing home's nursing score, we assess the number of hours nurses are caring for residents and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility 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 generally be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as employing a system of turning patients more frequently.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Additionally, we also wanted to point out that this facility was given favorable short-term care marks in this assessment. We awarded them one of our better grades in this category, with a B+. This proved to be the nursing home's second strongest grade. In determining our short-term care grades, we look at a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. This rating is considered to be a meaningful assessment of a facility's rehabilitation. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final item we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 5.5 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Turning to our inspection category, it appears this nursing home has received respectable inspections in recent years as well. We gave it a grade of B- in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. Although this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next area we graded was long-term care, is this facility's weakest category. We gave this nursing home a D in that area. This is one of the few dings of a strong report card. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means the facility did not perform well in our measures relating to resident care. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 93.26599 percent of its residents, which is a few points less than we were hoping for. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best score in this category.
