Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

On top of performing well in its overall grade, this facility received even higher grades in our short-term care category. It earned one of our highest grades in that area with an A-. In determining our short-term care grades, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to formulate a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.2 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This facility also performed well in inspections. It received a nearly flawless government inspection report this year. It received one of our highest scores in that area with a score of A-. Few facilities with an overall grade in this range performed this well in multiple categories. Inspection grades are based on many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspections. Places that receive favorable grades in this category typically have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This facility received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to be an imminent risk to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't something to panic about.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. There are several subcategories within this category. Many of these factors are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.4 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 nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next category we graded was long-term care. This nursing home was given an impressive long-term care score in our assessment, with a C. Even though this wasn't quite as elite as a few of its other grades, this is still a decent score for this area. In calculating our long-term care grades, we analyze the personal care received by the facility's residents. One of the data points we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 92.26666 percent of its patients. Nevertheless, this facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
