Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In addition to being a first rate nursing home overall, this nursing home also excelled in our short-term care category, where it earned an A. Our short-term care scores are critical for patients seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 5.6 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home has received near flawless inspections recently. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite insignificant. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A- in our nursing category. Our nursing score considers many datapoints. The most important factor is the number of hours nurses spend with patients. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of 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

The next category we looked at was long-term care. This facility received an above average nursing grade in our assessment, with a grade of B. While this wasn't nearly as strong as some of its other scores, this remains one of the more favorable grades in that category. Facilities that excel in long-term care tend to provide patients with better supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is significantly higher than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
