Nurse Quality

Grade: A

In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this nursing home received even higher grades in the area of nursing. In fact, we gave it one of our best grades in that category with an A. The nursing rating weighs several datapoints, most of which are tied to nursing hours. 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 place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this facility's quality category grades came in the area of long-term care. We awarded them one of our stronger grades in that area, with a score of B+. Nursing homes that do well in this category tend to provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 98.4556 percent of its residents, which is much higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this facility also performed well in our inspection category, which is based on the nursing home's recent government inspection reports. In fact, we gave it a grade of B+ for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Moving on to the next area, this facility was given a decent short-term care score of C. Short-term care grades are often used to measure a facility's rehabilitation services. To have good rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to offer higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 3.7 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
