Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall score, we gave this facility an impressive grade of A for our short-term care rating. In the category of short-term care, we seek to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return home from this facility. We found that 5.9 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Among its many impressive grades, this facility received an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A- in that category. There are a number of criteria within this category. Most of the factors are tied to staffing levels. This nursing home provides 0.5 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 nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Tallying yet another strong category grade, this facility also excelled in inspections, where it earned an A-. Few nursing homes fared better in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. While this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In the last category we assessed, this nursing home was given a very favorable grade of B+ in our long-term care category. With this grade, the facility topped off a very favorable report card. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in this category it is typically a good sign for patient care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses and aids. After assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
