Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

To pair with its strong overall score, we awarded this nursing home an A for short-term care. Short-term care grades are meaningful for residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a broad spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this facility submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.9 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Adding to its impressive category scores, this nursing home also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A. Not many nursing homes performed better in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively insignificant. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also received a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A-. Our nursing grade weighs a handful of subcategories, but the primary one is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The final area we assessed is long-term care. In this area, we awarded this nursing home an impressive grade of B. For prospective patients in need of a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 93.71069 percent of its residents, which is a bit below what we anticipated. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
