Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

On top of earning a strong overall score, this facility also received an elite short-term care grade. We awarded them one of our better grades in that area, with an A. In the category of short-term care, we seek to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 6.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home performed well in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Nursing grades are primarily based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This facility also received favorable inspections in recent years. In fact, we awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a B. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are quite insignificant. This facility was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This means that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final category we looked at is long-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a solid grade of C. This turned out to be this facility's weakest area. With our long-term care rating, we focus more on the volume of services offered by a nursing home, along with a handful of quality statistics. Once we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. We were pleased to discover that this facility vaccinated 95 percent of its patients for pneumonia. This place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
