Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility really excelled at short-term care, with an A- in this area. This really propped up its overall grade. Our short-term care grades are considered to be more meaningful for residents in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This includes not only nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this facility submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The final statistic we looked at in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

We also want to emphasize this place's nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of B+ in this category. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

An additional reason we rated this facility so highly is that it earned an A+ nursing rating. Nursing ratings are tied to nurse staffing levels. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we analyzed was long-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this category, which is a poor grade. This is obviously a significant concern. For long-term care residents, the primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is more than the average nursing home. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
