Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ short-term care grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. In calculating these short-term care grades, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to formulate a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. This nursing home provided more physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most facilities. This is what we like to find when assessing a nursing home in this category. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of nursing homes in the nation with 73.4 percent of its patients returning home. This is a significantly higher rate than most nursing homes.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home also received a nearly flawless inspection. As a result, it earned one of our highest scores in that category with an A+. This is one of the few nursing homes to receive multiple A+ category grades. Inspection ratings account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this category usually have few of these severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as 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 safety or health. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. When determining our nursing ratings, we analyze both staffing levels and the training levels of those nurses. This nursing home provided 4.5 hours of nursing care per resident each day, which is among the highest figures in the country. A significant percentage of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the most highly skilled levels of nurses. We are very impressed by both of these figures. In addition to looking at levels of nursing care, we also looked at a few quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these statistics as predictive indicators of the caliber of nursing care provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Turning to our next area, this facility was given a respectable long-term care score. While this isn't as impressive as some of its other category grades, this is still not the end of the world. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care scores. This facility's vaccination statistics lagged a bit behind a few of its other statistics in this category, such as its nursing hours data. It administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 90.38462 percent of its patients. We would love to see some improvement in this area next year. Nevertheless, this place keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.77 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
