Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

We wanted to point out that this nursing home' short-term care grade outpaced its overall grade. In fact, we awarded it a B for short-term care, which is one of our better scores. This propped up its overall score. In crafting our short-term care ratings, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to formulate a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last metric we looked at in this category is the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. Nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this facility an B-. In computing a facility's nursing rating, we weigh the number of hours nurses spend with patients and the skill levels of the nurses. This facility provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Turning to our inspection category, it appears this facility has earned respectable inspections in recent years as well. We gave it a grade of B- in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively insignificant. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. This is a great sign for the quality of care at this nursing home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the last category, we gave this facility a D for the area of long-term care. This is the nursing home's weakest category rating. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care ratings. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. We were pleased to find that this facility vaccinated 99 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
