Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also wanted to point out that this nursing home earned an impressive grade of A- for nursing. The nursing rating weighs a handful of subcategories, however, the most important consideration is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This particular nursing home provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home 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 many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

In addition, this nursing home also received a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it earned one of our highest grades in that category with an A-. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also was awarded a very strong long-term care score. This actually is its third most impressive category grade. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of A-. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 81.818184 percent of its patients. This is slightly below what we were hoping for but still a respectable percentage. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In the last area, this nursing home also was awarded an excellent short-term care grade, with a B+. This topped off a first-rate profile. In crafting these short-term care scores, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to devise a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this nursing home provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
