Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

To pair with its strong overall score, we awarded this nursing home an A for our short-term care rating. In computing our short-term care ratings, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to formulate a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this facility provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of patients who returned home from this facility. We found that 6.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This facility has earned near flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively insignificant. This facility received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies an immediate risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home was given a first-rate grade of A- in our long-term care area. Facilities that do well in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 98.84393 percent of its residents. This is a great way to minimize unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the elderly population. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep 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.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

The next area we assessed was nursing. We gave this nursing home one of our better scores in this area, with a B. Although this wasn't on par with some of this nursing home's other scores, it is nevertheless a fine grade. Nursing ratings are tied to quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
