Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home received an A+ in the area of short-term care. In our short-term care category, we seek to craft a valuable barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze the nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.5 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. Nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility an A+. Our nursing category weighs several datapoints, many of which are associated with levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Another impressive feature of this facility is its inspection grade. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an A. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we scored is long-term care, where this facility was awarded a B-. Even though this is its least impressive category score, this is nevertheless not the end of the world. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 95 percent of its residents. This nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
