Short-term Care Quality

In addition to being a first rate facility overall, this facility also excelled at short-term care, where it received an A. Few nursing homes fared better in this category. In the category of short-term care, we strive to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 5.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This facility has earned near flawless government inspections recently. We awarded them an A- in this category. Our inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this area usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This tells you the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. The nursing grade includes a handful of components, but the primary one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we scored is long-term care, in which this nursing home received a grade of B-. Although this turned out to be its poorest category score, this is nevertheless not a poor grade. In the category of long-term care, we analyze the quantity of services provided by a nursing home, rather than more sophisticated services. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. This place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
