Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

On top of earning a great overall grade, this nursing home also received an A+ short-term care grade. Short-term care scores are meaningful for residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a wide spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. This nursing home employs both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities employ these skilled professionals. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 7.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home also received an A+ for its nursing grade. The nursing rating is based on several subcategories, many of which are based on levels of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Racking up another strong category grade, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection grades. One critical factor is 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. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate deficiency counts for this nursing home. We would like to have more data for this nursing home. Without having complete deficiency data, it is challenging to grade this facility in this category.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we analyzed is this facility's poorest category. However, even in its weakest link we still awarded it a respectable grade of B- in long-term care. In the category of long-term care, we weigh the amount of services provided by a facility, rather than more medically-intensive services. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home submitted information about vaccinations. Finally, this nursing home excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
