Nurse Quality

Grade: A

One of the many reasons this place received a great overall grade is that it earned an impressive nursing rating. In this category, we gave this nursing home an A. In determining our nursing grades, we assess both staffing levels and the training levels of the nurses. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures 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 place Maryland 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 employing a policy of turning a resident more frequently.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This facility has received near flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite minor. This place received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility is also strong in the category of long-term care, where it was awarded a score of B+. It performed better than most facilities in this category. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 83.478264 percent of its patients. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, at least this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The last category we scored proved to be this nursing home's poorest area. However, even its weakest link would actually be a highlight for most facilities. In fact, we awarded it a strong grade of B for our short-term care category. Our short-term care ratings are considered to be most critical for those needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who ultimately returned home from this nursing home. We found that 4.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
