Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also found that this facility excelled in our short-term care rating. We gave them an A+ in this area. With our short-term care score, we try to craft a fair gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last item we considered in this area is the percentage of residents that returned home from the facility. We found that 6.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

This facility also received a virtually flawless inspection report. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in that category with an A+. This is one of the few nursing homes to receive multiple A+ category grades. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This tells you the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

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 looked at the levels of nurses employed by the nursing home, as well as the quantity of hours the nurses worked with residents, in determining our score in this category. This particular nursing home provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Switching gears to our next area, this facility received a highly favorable long-term care score. While this was not as good as many of its other scores, this remains one of our more favorable grades a facility can receive. Nursing homes that excel in this category tend to provide patients with better supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. After we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is too frequently a life threatening ailment for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't take any chances. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
