Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This facility really excelled at short-term care. We awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our highest grades. This really boosted its overall profile. With our short-term care assessment, we endeavor to create a valuable measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Inspections is another category where this nursing home excelled. We awarded this facility a grade of B+ for our inspections category. Our inspection scores are tied to several pieces of information found on the a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this area typically have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. 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.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Another reason we rated this facility so highly is that it received an A+ nursing grade. There are many factors included in this category. Most of the criteria reflect the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.4 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 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: D

Moving on to our last area, we awarded this facility a grade of D for long-term care. This was the facility's weakest category grade. Sadly, this score pulled down the nursing home's overall grade to some degree. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. We were pleased to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 96.05263 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
