Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall score, we gave this facility an A for our short-term care grade. In our short-term care rating, we endeavor to craft a fair barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze a facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that 6.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its impressive profile, this nursing home also performed well in the category of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless government inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our highest grades in that category with an A-. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite insignificant. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. While this didn't quite match its scores in some of the categories discussed above, this is still a decent score. Our nursing grade includes a variety of factors. The most important one is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. This place provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a somewhat concerning figure which is well below the national average. Finally, nursing grades also factor in quality-based metrics, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this facility actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually a good indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses to assist its patients.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next category we rated is long-term care. We gave this facility a D in long-term care, rendering this the nursing home's worst area. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this nursing home also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
