Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A in our short-term care category. Our short-term care scores are thought to be more critical for people in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 5.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Adding to this nursing home's impressive resume, we gave this nursing home an A for inspections. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite insignificant. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent 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 nursing home also was strong in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a score of A-. Not many nursing homes performed better in this area. For long-term care residents, the primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 90.196075 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be a few points below what we were hoping for but still a reasonably acceptable figure. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, at least this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Turning to our last area, this nursing home was awarded a high-end nursing rating. In fact, we awarded it an A- in that area, rounding out a straight A profile. Nursing ratings are based largely on quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home provides 0.6 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 place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
