Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In addition to being a first rate nursing home overall, this facility also excelled at short-term care, where it received an A. In the category of short-term care, we seek to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This facility has earned near flawless inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A in this area. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This place received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to be an imminent risk to resident health or safety. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B+. The nursing score is based on many datapoints, most of which are associated with nursing hours. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by having a policy of turning residents more often.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Moving on to our final area, this facility was given an acceptable long-term care score. Even though this was not nearly as good as some of its other grades, this is still nothing to be ashamed of. Our long-term care ratings are critical for patients seeking non-healthcare services such as personal care. After we finished assessing the quantity of nursing care, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 91.42857 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Nevertheless, this nursing home keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
