Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In addition to being a first rate nursing home overall, this nursing home also excelled at short-term care, where it earned an A. Few facilities performed better in this category. Short-term care grades are often used to gauge a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To offer good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to feature higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Adding to its impressive category grades, this nursing home excelled in the category of inspections, where it received a grade of A. Not many nursing homes performed better in this area. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This tells you CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this facility also received favorable nursing grades this year. In fact, we awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. In calculating a facility's nursing score, we assess the quantity of hours nurses commit to residents and the level of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In the last category we analyzed, this facility was awarded an impressive grade grade of B+ in our long-term care category. With this score, the facility rounded out a very favorable report card. For patients in need of a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. After assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 92.81437 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is a bit less than we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable figure. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
