Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ nursing grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. There are a variety of datapoints within this grade. Many of these factors relate to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Turning to inspections, this nursing home excelled in that area, which is based on the nursing home's recent inspection reports. We awarded it an A- for that category. Inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this area tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This means that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies an immediate risk to resident safety or health. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Turning to an additional strength for this nursing home, we gave them one of our more favorable grades in our short-term care category as well, with a B. In crafting our short-term care scores, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to create a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the number of residents that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 4.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next category we rated was long-term care, in which this nursing home was awarded a grade of B. Although this turned out to be its poorest category rating, this is still a good grade. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 99.54955 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly is often a life or death condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home does not leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
