Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

One of the reasons this turned out to be a quality facility is it received a very impressive short-term care score. In fact, short-term care is its best category. In that area, we gave this nursing home an A. In calculating our short-term care scores, we size up the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other licensed professionals. This category is frequently a solid assessment of a facility's rehabilitation services. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.3 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Adding to this nursing home's list of strengths, it also received an excellent nursing grade. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this category. Nursing grades are mostly associated with a nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' 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 earned impressive government inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better grades in that area, with a B. Arguably the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This facility was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to create an imminent risk to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not something to panic about.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last category we looked at was long-term care. This facility was given a C in the area. In computing our long-term care ratings, we assess the personal care received by the facility's patients. One of the data points we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Thankfully, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 97.68786 percent of its residents. This place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
