Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

On top of earning a great overall score, this nursing home also received an excellent short-term care grade, with an A. Our short-term care grade is commonly used to score a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to have quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 7 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Adding to this facility's impressive resume, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our inspections rating. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. 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 was awarded a strong long-term care score as well. We awarded it one of our higher grades in that category with a score of B+. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is far higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we scored was nursing. In that area, we gave this nursing home a solid grade of B-. This was this nursing home's least impressive category. In computing our nursing grades, we weigh both staffing levels and the training levels of those nurses. This facility provided just 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly excelled in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it scored well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
