Nurse Quality

Grade: A

In addition to being a quality nursing home overall, this facility really excelled in nursing, where it received an A. When computing our nursing grades, we assess both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Among this facility's other strengths is its top-shelf short-term care grade. We gave them one of our more favorable grades in that area, with a score of A-. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. We weren't able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final metric we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 5.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Moving on to another of this facility's strengths, it also earned a very impressive inspection rating. In that area, we gave this nursing home an impressive grade of B+. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better grades in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we graded was long-term care, in which this facility was awarded a grade of B-. While this ended up being its worst category rating, this is still not the end of the world. Long-term care grades are typically used to assess a nursing home's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services offered by a rehabilitation facility. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is a very solid statistic. This place keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
