Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also would like to point out that this facility excelled in our nursing grade. We awarded them an A+ in this area. The nursing rating weighs numerous factors. The most important one is the quantity of hours nurses spent with residents. This facility provided 0.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home 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 frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home was given quality marks in the category of short-term care. As a result, it was given one of our highest scores in that category with a score of A+. In calculating our short-term care scores, we analyze the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This score is generally a fair measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last measure we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 5.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Turning to our inspection category, this facility excelled in that area, which is based on the facility's recent government inspection reports. In fact, we gave it an impressive grade of A for that category. Inspection scores are tied to several pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that excel in this category tend to have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate information about this nursing home's deficiencies. We wish we had more data for this facility. Without having access to the information regarding deficiencies, it ended up being challenging to really grade it in the inspections category.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last area we graded is long-term care. This facility was given an above average long-term care grade this year, with a B-. While this wasn't quite as good as several of its other scores, this is still a decent score in this area. Our long-term care grades are more important for residents requiring more traditional services associated with personal care. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Fortunately, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 96 percent of its patients. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
