Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

One of the reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received a very impressive short-term care grade. Short-term care turned out to be its best category. In that category, we gave this facility an A. Our short-term care grades are critical for prospective residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a vast scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last item we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 6.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this nursing home also received top notch inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better grades in that area, with a grade of B+. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. This facility didn't perform quite as well in this category as it did in some other categories. Nevertheless, this is still a respectable score. Nursing ratings are based in large part on quality and quantity of nursing care. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often a good indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last area we assessed is long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of C in that category. Long-term care grades are essential for residents seeking non-healthcare services such as personal care. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 92.08211 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is a few points below what we anticipated but still a decent percentage. Nevertheless, this facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
