Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home received a strong overall score as described above, but we wanted to note its excellent short-term care grade. We gave them an A in this category. Our short-term care ratings are believed to be more meaningful for residents in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last measure we assessed in this category is the number of patients who returned home from the nursing home. We found that 4.9 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also received a strong nursing score. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this area. Nursing ratings are primarily based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

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 grades are based on many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that receive favorable grades in this category typically have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This nursing home was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily something to panic about.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The final category we graded is long-term care. We awarded this nursing home one of our more favorable scores in this category, with a B. This facility proved to be very solid in each area we assessed. When facilities receive this type of score in long-term care it is usually a good sign for patient care and indicates that the facility is well-staffed with nurses aids. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is far higher than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
