Nurse Quality

Grade: A

In addition to earning a great overall grade, this nursing home also received an elite nursing grade. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of A. When calculating our nursing ratings, we analyze both nursing hours and the skill levels of those nurses. This particular nursing home provided 3.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

We also want to emphasize this facility's nearly flawless government inspections recently. We awarded them an A in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some can be quite insignificant. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We also gave this nursing home a grade of A for our short-term care grade. Short-term care scores are meaningful for prospective residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional skilled nursing services. This means a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. One of this nursing home's strength is that it offers more hours of care from registered nurses to its residents. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. It outperformed the vast majority of facilities in the country in this area with 60.4 percent of its residents returning home. This is a significantly better rate than most facilities.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's worst category was long-term care, which is the last area we analyzed. For this area, we gave this facility a grade of D. We want to to draw your attention to this possible weak spot, but you should not over-emphasize a single category either. For long-term care residents, the 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. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Fortunately, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 94.117645 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.46 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
