Short-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+ short-term care grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. In computing our short-term care ratings, we scrutinize a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. This area is frequently a reliable measure of the nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.9 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B for our inspections rating. Nursing scores are mostly tied to the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.6 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 avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This nursing home also received favorable government inspections in recent years. In fact, we gave them one of our better grades in that area, with a B. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively minor. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next category we graded was long-term care. This nursing home was awarded a strong long-term care rating in our assessment, with a grade of C. Even though this isn't nearly as elite as a few of its other scores, this remains an acceptable grade in that category. In the area of long-term care, we weigh the quantity of care offered by a facility, as opposed to more medically-intensive services. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home provided the vaccine to 98.870056 percent of its residents, which is an above average statistic. This nursing home keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
