Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

On top of performing well in its overall grade, this facility received high marks in our short-term care category as well. It received our highest score in that category with a score of A+. Short-term care grades are meaningful for people requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a broad range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.2 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Adding to its impressive category grades, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its impressive resume, this nursing home also excelled in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. In computing our nursing scores, we assess both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of those nurses. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place 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

The last category we rated was long-term care. We gave this nursing home a decent grade in that area, with a B-. Even though this is not as favorable as many of this facility's other grades, it is nevertheless not a terrible score. Our long-term care grade is typically used to assess a nursing home's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services provided by a rehabilitation facility. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is better than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
