Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it earned a strong short-term care score. In fact, this turned out to be its best category. In that area, we awarded this facility an A-. In calculating our short-term care grades, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to formulate a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. We weren't able to track down registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The final item we looked at in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 5.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its strong resume, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with a grade of A-. Our nursing rating is largely associated with a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place Maryland in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of moving patients even once per day.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This facility has had near flawless government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this area. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent 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

In our last area, this facility also was given a very strong long-term care grade, with a grade of B+. This topped off a very favorable profile. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 98.6532 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia tragically can be a dangerous condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a nursing home doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
