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. Our short-term care ratings are likely most meaningful for people in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. This means not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also received a strong nursing score. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this area. Our nursing score is largely associated with the facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place 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-plus

We also wanted to emphasize this nursing home's nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of B+ in this category. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This particular nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final area we rated was long-term care, where this nursing home was given a grade of B-. This turned out to be this facility's weakest category. This is nevertheless nothing to be ashamed of. Long-term care grades are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of nursing services. This means a broad spectrum of personal care services, ranging from help with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 96.82152 percent of its residents. This nursing home keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
