Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this nursing home performed well in our short-term care category. We awarded it an impressive grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Short-term care scores are vital for patients seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a wide scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. We were not able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The last item we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 5.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This facility also excelled in inspections. In fact, we gave it a grade of A- for that area. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this facility also received favorable nursing grades this year. In fact, we awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. There are several factors within this category. Many of the factors relate to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 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 facility 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 many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's weakest category is long-term care, which is the final category we looked at. In this area, we awarded this facility a grade of D. If you are looking for anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care scores. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
