Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We also wanted to emphasize that this facility received an impressive grade of A in our short-term care category. Short-term care grades are meaningful for residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a wide range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last item we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 6.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Adding to its impressive category scores, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This tells you the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also received a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A-. We weighed the levels of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses were with patients, in computing our rating in this area. This facility provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The final area we graded is long-term care. We gave this facility one of our higher grades in this category, with a B. Although this isn't as high as some of this nursing home's other grades, it is nevertheless a positive grade. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 97.19101 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is far higher than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
