Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

On top of receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home excelled in our shot-term care category. In fact, we awarded it an A for that category. Our short-term care grades are presumably most critical for people in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional highly-skilled nursing services. This means not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. 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. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.5 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its strong resume, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with a grade of A. There are numerous datapoints included in this category. Many of the datapoints reflect levels of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home 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 place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home has received near flawless government inspections in recent years. We gave them an A- in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Moving on to our last category, this facility also performed admirably in our long-term care category. We awarded it a grade of B+ in this category. This rounded out a first-rate profile. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 94.13793 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a proven method to minimize unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the aged 65 and up population. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
