Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility earned an elite short-term care grade. In fact, we gave this nursing home an A- in this area, which really helped its overall grade. In calculating our short-term care grades, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to devise a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. When we assessed this facility's nursing hours, we found it offered more care from registered nurses than most nursing homes. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that it fared as well as just about any facility in Maryland in this area with 63.6 percent of its patients returning home. With most facilities, less than half of their short-stay residents are able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

We also want to emphasize this facility's nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of B+ in this category. Our inspection scores are based on several datapoints located in the a nursing home's government inspections. Facilities that score well in this area tend to have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we assessed was long-term care, where this facility was given a grade of B- in this category. Long-term care grades assess a facility's assistance with daily living rather than the skilled therapy or medical services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 93.869736 percent of its patients, which is a bit less than we anticipated. Nevertheless, this place keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 1.33 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The last category we rated is nursing. We gave this facility a C in that category. Our nursing category is based on quite a few factors, many of which are based on nursing hours. This nursing home provides 3.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we look at quality-based statistics, such as the percent of residents who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. These metrics are measures of the quality of nursing care.
