Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

One of the reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received a very impressive short-term care grade. Short-term care is its best category. In that area, we gave this nursing home an A. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we size up a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This area is often a reliable assessment of the facility's rehabilitation services. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last metric we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 6.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

This facility received high grades in the area of nursing as well. In fact, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A. The nursing rating weighs several factors. The most important one is the amount of time nurses spend with patients. This particular nursing home provided 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 place 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 avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Another area of strength for this nursing home is in inspections. In fact, inspections turned out to be one of its best categories. In that area, we gave this nursing home a B. Our inspection scores are based on datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that excel in this area have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we analyzed turned out to be this facility's weakest category. Nevertheless, even in its weakest link we still gave it an acceptable grade of B- for our long-term care category. Our long-term care ratings are pivotal for patients in need of non-healthcare services such as personal care. After assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. It doesn't appear that this nursing home provided information about vaccinations. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
