Nurse Quality

Grade: A

One of the reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. In fact, this proved to be its best category. In this area, we awarded this nursing home an A. The nursing grade is based on several factors, but the paramount consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 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 place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Adding to its impressive category grades, this nursing home also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned a grade of A. Few nursing homes performed as well in this area. Our inspection ratings account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this category tend to have very few severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This facility also was strong in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of A. Not many facilities fared better in this area. In computing our short-term care ratings, we assess the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This rating is often a meaningful measure of the facility's rehabilitation services. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 5.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The last area we graded is long-term care, where this facility was awarded a grade of B. While this wound up being its poorest category rating, this is still a favorable grade. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 98.34711 percent of its patients, which is far higher than the average nursing home. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
