Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In addition to performing well overall, this nursing home earned an excellent short-term care score. In fact, we gave it an A in that category. Our short-term care grade is commonly employed to gauge a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to provide quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this facility provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The final measure we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 6.5 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This facility has received near flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively minor. It does not look like we were able to find deficiency data for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Moving on our third area, this nursing home was given a strong long-term care score. In fact, we gave it a grade of A- in this category. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is typically a good sign for patient care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. After considering the quantity of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia can be a dangerous health condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

In the last category we analyzed, this facility received an impressive grade grade of A- in our nursing category. With this score, the nursing home finished off a straight A report card. Nursing ratings are primarily associated with a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place 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.
