Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our short-term care grade. In our short-term care category, we try to craft a valuable gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at a nursing home's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. In that category, we awarded this facility an A-. Our nursing grade is primarily tied to a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This facility 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 nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

In addition, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with better grades in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This means the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next category we looked at is long-term care, which was this nursing home's least impressive area. We awarded this facility a grade of D in this area. Nevertheless, you shouldn't judge this facility based only on a single weak category, as it earned a few high-end grades in other areas. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care scores. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. Thankfully, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 98.784195 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
