Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our short-term care rating. Short-term care grades are typically used to measure a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To have quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide higher levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that 6.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A in our nursing category. Nursing grades are primarily associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to another strength for this nursing home, we awarded them one of our higher grades in our long-term care category as well, with a B+. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in this category typically provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure residents are well cared for. One of the datapoints we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccinations. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 96.02649 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a great way to minimize unnecessary hospitalizations for the elderly population. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Moving on to our inspection category, it appears this nursing home has earned quality inspections in recent years as well. We gave it a grade of B in this category. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.
