Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to point out that this nursing home excelled in our nursing category. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. In calculating a facility's nursing grade, we look at the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility Maryland in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as having a system of moving a patient even once per day.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This nursing home has earned near flawless health inspections in recent years. We gave them an A in this area. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This facility also fared very well in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of A. Few facilities performed better in this category. Nursing homes that excel in this category tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia tragically can be a dangerous health condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave this to chance. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In our last category, we gave this facility an A for our short-term care grade. This completed a very impressive profile. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to create a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of patients that eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
