Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility received a strong overall grade as described above, but we especially want to note its excellent short-term care score. We awarded them an A- in this area. In determining these short-term care ratings, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to devise a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final item we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents that returned home from the facility. We found that 5.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this facility also performed well in our inspection category, which is based on the facility's inspections. We awarded it a grade of B+ for that area. Our inspection grades are based on several pieces of information found on the a nursing home's government inspections. Nursing homes that score well in this area typically have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. Although this place had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Another strong feature for this facility is that it received an impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B. Our nursing grade is based on several factors, many of which are based on levels of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Switching gears to the next category, this nursing home was given a grade of B- in long-term care, which is an acceptable rating. In the category of long-term care, we assess the amount of care offered by a facility, rather than more healthcare-oriented services. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccinations. Thankfully, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 97.05015 percent of its residents. This place keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
