Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this facility also received A+ short-term care grade. Our short-term care grade is typically used to measure a facility's rehabilitation services. To offer quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to feature better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 7.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our nursing grade. Our nursing grade is largely associated with a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home 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 facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This nursing home also earned favorable inspections in recent years. In fact, we gave them one of our better scores in that area, with a B. Inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this category typically have few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final area we graded is long-term care, in which this facility was given a grade of C. This ended up being this nursing home's least impressive category. This is nevertheless a middle of the pack score. Long-term care grades focus on a facility's assistance with daily living rather than the highly skilled nursing or healthcare services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. This facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
