Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ nursing grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. When calculating our nursing scores, we factor in both nursing hours and the training levels of the nurses. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its fine resume, this facility also was given a dominant short-term care grade, with a grade of A. In crafting these short-term care scores, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to formulate a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we considered in this category is the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 6.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This facility also received a nearly flawless inspection report. It received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively minor. While this place had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. A couple relatively minor dings aren't something to panic about.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The final area we analyzed is long-term care, in which this facility received a grade of B. Although this ended up being its least impressive category score, this is still a favorable score. For patients in need of a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 93.869736 percent of its patients. This is somewhat lower than we expected but still a respectable percentage. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
