Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

In addition to earning a strong overall score, this nursing home fared well in our short-term care category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category. Short-term care scores are vital for prospective residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a broad scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This proved to be a real strength for this facility. This place outperformed the vast majority of facilities in this area with 60.2 percent of its residents returning home. This is a significantly higher rate than most facilities.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its impressive profile, this facility also performed at a high level in the area of inspections. In fact, it earned a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best grades in that category with an B+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively insignificant. While this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor dings aren't the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. While this wasn't quite as good as some of its other category grades, this isn't a bad score either. Our nursing rating assesses the facility's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of training of the nurses as well as the number of hours spent with residents. This nursing home averages 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in some quality-focused statistics. Specifically, we look at the percent of residents who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these statistics as reliable measures of the quality of nursing care, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Switching gears to our next category, this nursing home was awarded a decent long-term care grade of C. Long-term care grades assess a facility's assistance with daily living rather than the highly skilled nursing and medical services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 91.92547 percent of its patients, which is slightly lower than we were hoping for. The last datapoint we looked at is its hospitalization rate. While it had 2.62 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric was not as bad.
