Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our short-term care rating. Our short-term care grade is generally employed to judge a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To offer quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 6.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its impressive resume, this nursing home also excelled in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. Nursing grades are mostly based on a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Moving on to our inspection category, this facility excelled in that area, which is based on the nursing home's recent government inspection reports. In fact, we gave it an A- for that category. Our inspection grades account for several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this category typically have few severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The final category we scored is long-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a grade of B. This actually is this nursing home's least impressive area. A nursing home is doing something right when their worst grade still outperforms most other facilities. Facilities that receive this type of score in long-term care typically provide consistent around the clock care to ensure patients are well cared for. After considering the volume of nursing care, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 93.565216 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
