Nurse Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home received a strong overall grade as discussed above, but we especially wanted to emphasize its excellent nursing score. We awarded them an A in this area. The nursing score analyzes many datapoints, but the paramount one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms 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-minus

This nursing home truly excelled in the area of short-term care, where it received a score of A-. Few facilities performed more favorably in this category. Short-term care grades are meaningful for residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more skilled nursing services. This means a wide spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This facility also earned impressive government inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better scores in that category, with a B. Our inspection grades are based on several items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this area typically have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. Although this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next area we graded was long-term care, in which this nursing home was given a C. This actually is this facility's weakest category. This is nevertheless not a terrible score. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. After we finished looking at the amount of nursing care, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. We were pleased to discover that this facility vaccinates 99.4012 percent of its residents against pneumonia. This place also excelled at keeping its residents 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.
