Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A in our short-term care category. Our short-term care grade is commonly employed to judge a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to offer good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer higher levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 5.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. In that category, we awarded this facility an A. Our nursing rating includes a host of datapoints. The most important factor is the number of hours nurses spent with residents. 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 facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Moving on to another of this facility's strengths, it also received a very impressive inspection grade. This proved to be one of its best category grades. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B+. Our inspection ratings are based on many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that excel in this category have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This nursing home was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient health or safety. A few minor dings aren't the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final category we looked at is long-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a grade of B-. While this turned out to be its weakest category rating, this is still not a terrible score. In the area of long-term care, we assess the quantity of services provided by a nursing home, as opposed to more healthcare-oriented services. Once we assessed the volume of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to find that this facility vaccinated 96.32353 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
