Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

On top of faring well overall, this nursing home received an excellent short-term care score. We gave it a grade of A in that area. Our short-term care ratings are presumably more important for people requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final item we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that 6.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Turning to inspections, this facility excelled in that area, which is based on the facility's recent government inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A for that category. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

After assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients healthy. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

The last area we analyzed was nursing, where this facility was given a grade of B. Believe it or not, this was this nursing home's worst category. A nursing home could be doing a lot worse when it's worst score still outperforms most nursing homes. Our nursing grade assesses the facility's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of training of those nurses as well as the amount of time spent with residents. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
