Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ long-term care grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. One of the factors we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 95.48872 percent of its patients. This is a great way to avoid unnecessary deaths for the nursing home population. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Adding to its impressive category scores, this facility also excelled in the category of inspections, where it received an A. Inspection scores are based on several datapoints located in the a nursing home's government inspections. Places that receive favorable grades in this category tend to have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility is also strong in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B+. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. Nursing ratings are based largely on quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility 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 typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The last category we looked at proved to be this nursing home's poorest category. However, even its weakest link would be a highlight for many nursing homes. We gave it a favorable grade of B in short-term care. Our short-term care grade is typically used to score a facility's rehabilitation services. To provide high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must offer higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
