Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

One of the reasons this proved to be a quality nursing home is that it received a very impressive short-term care grade. Short-term care turned out to be its best category. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of A. In determining our short-term care scores, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to create a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. Nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this facility an A-. There are a number of factors included in this category. Most of the datapoints relate to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures 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 place the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as employing a system of turning a patient at least once a day.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

We also wanted to point out this facility's nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We gave them a grade of B+ in this category. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final area we assessed was long-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a solid grade of C. This actually proved to be this nursing home's least impressive area. For prospective patients looking for a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. One of the data points we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 91.16883 percent of its residents. Nevertheless, this nursing home excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
