Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ nursing grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. Nursing scores are heavily correlated with nurse staffing levels. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its impressive profile, this facility also performed at a high level in the area of inspections. In fact, it earned a nearly flawless government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best grades in that category with an B+. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this area typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Although this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A few relatively minor dings are not necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home is also strong in the area of short-term care, where it was given a grade of B. It outpaced most nursing homes in this area. In calculating these short-term care ratings, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to devise a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of patients that ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that 4.4 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final area we scored was long-term care. We awarded this facility an acceptable score in this category, with a B-. Even though this is not as favorable as several of this nursing home's other grades, it is nevertheless not a major area of concern. Long-term care grades assess a nursing home's personal care rather than the skilled therapy and healthcare services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 99.802376 percent of its patients, which is higher than most nursing homes. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
