Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it earned an A+ short-term care grade. Our short-term care grade is often employed to score a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To offer highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 7.3 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

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. Inspection ratings are based on several datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspections. Nursing homes that excel in this category have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. It does not look like we were able to find deficiency data for this facility. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

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. The nursing rating analyzes quite a few components, however, the paramount consideration is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Switching gears to our fourth area, this facility received a strong long-term care rating. We awarded it a grade of B+ in this area, completing one of our more favorable report cards. If you are seeking services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care scores. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 82.02248 percent of its patients. This is a bit below what we anticipated. While 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 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
