Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

One of the reasons this proved to be a quality nursing home is it received a very impressive short-term care score. In fact, short-term care turned out to be its best category. In that category, we awarded this facility an A-. Short-term care scores are meaningful for residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This means a wide spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final metric we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 5.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

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+. Inspection grades are tied to many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspections. Facilities that score well in this area have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also received a strong nursing score. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B in this area. The nursing score weighs numerous factors. The most important variable is the number of hours nurses spent with residents. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Switching gears to our next area, we awarded this nursing home a D in long-term care. This is the facility's weakest category grade. Unfortunately, this grade pulled down the facility's overall profile a bit. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care grades. After we finished assessing the volume of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. We were pleased to discover that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
