Grade: A

Compounding its dominant achievements in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for its long-term care grade.

On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 80.95238 percent of its patients. This is somewhat below what we anticipated. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital.

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 state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of turning a patient more often.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Switching gears to the final area, this nursing home also performed well in the short-term care category. We gave it a B+ for that area. This topped off a first-rate report card. In crafting our short-term care ratings, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to create a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. It does not appear that this facility submitted information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The last metric we assessed in this area is the number of patients that were able to return home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
