Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In addition to being a first rate nursing home overall, this facility also excelled in our short-term care rating, where it earned an A. Few facilities performed better in this area. Short-term care ratings are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a vast scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 6.4 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Contributing to its high-end profile, this nursing home also was given an excellent long-term care score, with a grade of A. When facilities receive this type of score in this category it is typically a good sign for resident care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses and aids. After we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 99.5122 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly can be a life or death illness for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility does not roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping 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.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Tallying yet another strong category grade, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned a score of A. Few nursing homes fared better in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively minor. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

In our final area, this nursing home also was awarded a very strong nursing grade, with a grade of B+. This wrapped up a first-rate profile. Our nursing score focuses on the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of skill of the nurses as well as the amount of time spent with patients. This nursing home provides 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 place 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 generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
